About Us

The Commentator is the student newspaper of Yeshiva University. Founded in 1935, it is an independent student publication, self-funded and published throughout the academic year. Views expressed in The Commentator are those of its writers and do not necessarily reflect those of the editorial board or the student body, faculty and administration of Yeshiva University.

Content is published online from August through May each year, with print editions hitting shelves roughly every two weeks. The Commentator offers news and investigations relating to Yeshiva University, and serves as a platform for undergraduate student opinions.

The Commentator is run by undergraduates from Yeshiva College, Stern College for Women and Sy Syms School of Business.
