Journalistic Jewish geography

During the International Jewish Media Summit in Jerusalem last December, Arizona Jewish Life Contributing Editor Leni Reiss took advantage of the opportunity to ask several colleagues to briefly describe their publications. Their responses follow:

“My material is distributed to every member of the American Jewish and foreign press.
I have been reaching out for 29 years.”
– David Bedein, bureau chief, Israel
Resource News Agency (Jerusalem)

“My readers cross all the boundaries of Jewish New Orleans: young, old – everyone who cares about local, national, international news – and want it in a timely manner.”
-Alan Smason, editor, Crescent
City Jewish News (New Orleans)

“Our audience is intergenerational. We are one of the publications for whom that is consistently true. We are geared toward women who are independent, Jewish, and frankly feminist.”
-Susan Weidman Schneider, editor-in-chief,
Lilith magazine (New York)

“We cover the whole spectrum from Chabad to non-Jewish. The intention is to promote Jewish culture and life. The content can be described as a sophisticated mix.”
-Morton Landowne, publisher,

“Our readers are Jews and Jewish allies who care about world news through a Jewish lens in addition to news and opinion from their local Jewish community.”
-Sue Fishkoff, editor, j. the Jewish news weekly of Northern California
(name change to Bay Area Jewish News in the works) (California)

“We strive for the engaged Jewish reader who wants an unbiased and unfiltered daily update on Jewish matters. We have an international Jewish-speaking audience.”

We are a weekly newspaper in Turkish with one page in Ladino. It is a community paper, the only one in Turkey. The ministry of foreign affairs reads us along with the Jewish community.”
