An Oregon Jewish paper, The Jewish Review, will close in January after publishing for more than 40 years.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Portland announced last week that it would cease publication of the semimonthly.

According to the Federation, the paper was a victim of the economic climate and the changing newspaper industry. Closing the paper will free $100,000 for other projects, the federation said in its announcement.

A new publishing group, MediaPort, had informed the federation’s board of its intention to publish a monthly Portland Jewish magazine.
