Nearly five months after joining a violent mob in storming the U.S. Capitol building in a failed bid to undo the results of the 2020 presidential election, the controversial editor of one of the United States’ largest Jewish newspapers has been removed from his position. Last month, Elliot Resnick, the editor-in-chief of the Jewish Press, a hard-right Orthodox newspaper based in Brooklyn, was revealed as a participant in the January 6 insurrection, which left five dead and injured more than 100 police officers. As editor, Resnick proved to be an abrasive and controversial leader, drawing reprimands from the Anti-Defamation League for anti-LGBT rhetoric, as well as for running articles praising Rabbi Meir Kahane, a former editor of the paper who was banned from serving in the Knesset for racism and whose Kach party was designated a terror organization by the United States.
