Yehudah vi-Yerushalayim was one of the earliest periodicals to appear in Jerusalem. Its editor was the native Jerusalemite Yoel Moshe Salomon, founder of the first settlement, Petach Tikvah. The publisher was Salomon's father-in-law Abraham Rothenberg. (Halevy explains that it was necessary to list Rothenberg as co-editor as he had acquired Turkish citizenship, necessary to receive permission to publish from the Ottoman censor.) The journal was short-lived, commencing 2nd Adar, 1877 and terminating 11th Tamuz, 1878
