Jewish Press Limps Along

From The Jerusalem Post:

Mark Joffe, executive editor and publisher for the Jewish Telegraph Agency, painted a bleaker picture.

His organization services more than 90 client Jewish newspapers, and some have either folded, switched from a weekly to a monthly format or have changed ownership. He said the industry presented a mixed picture, as some newspapers have struggled while others have persevered.

Joffe said one of the most telling signs of the industry’s health was the American Jewish Press Association’s annual convention in June. Attendance was down more than 50 percent compared to the previous year, which Joffe said was an indictment on the Jewish press’ financial constraints.
