England’s “Jewish Chronicle” is the oldest continuously published Jewish newspaper in the world and has played a central part in the development of modern Anglo-Jewry. It appeared as a weekly from its inception on November 12th 1841, until publication was suspended six months later. In October 1844 publication was resumed as a biweekly, and it did not reassume the form of a weekly until 1847. It has remained thus until the present day. See EJ, Vol. X, cols. 40-1; and D. Cesarani, The Jewish Chronicle and Anglo Jewry (2005).
