Marc S. Klein, longtime editor and publisher of San Francisco-based j., the Jewish news weekly of Northern California, is planning to retire.
“I’ll be leaving probably sometime in the fall. I’m exhausted…I asked to leave and the board made it possible,” Klein wrote, noting “next Friday’s paper will…have a story that I’m retiring.” Klein cited his health as a factor in his decision.
According to j.’s website, “on Jan. 27, 1984, the paper was called the Northern California Jewish Bulletin when it announced the appointment of Marc S. Klein as editor and publisher, the titles he still holds today.” That website says the publication first appeared under its current name on Sept. 19, 2003.
