As a lifelong resident of Metro Detroit, it’s a special honor to be named to the publication's board of advisers. I'm one of 23 Jewish professionals in Metro Detroit asked to serve and each of us has something in common: a commitment to make the newspaper exceptional.
In 2016, the Michigan Press Association named JN's print edition the best weekly in the state in its circulation size. There are 40,000 weekly readers. I’ve enjoyed contributing stories in recent months and working with the paper’s talented staff, including Jackie Headapohl, managing editor, and Keri Guten Cohen, story development editor.
In order to help ensure the publication’s continued success, its website – thejewishnews.com – has been redesigned. Not only has the visual aesthetic changed, but more stories from the subscriber only print edition will be available free of charge. I encourage you to take a look at the site and email me your comments and suggestions. Also, please consider subscribing if you've read and enjoyed the print and/or online edition.
On behalf of the Detroit Jewish News, I appreciate your support!
