Forward editor-in-chief Jane Eisner has strong ties to the Philadelphia Jewish community. Before 2008 when she became the first woman to edit The Forward, she was vice president of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, held a variety of positions at the Philadelphia Inquirer including editorial page editor, and taught at the University of Pennsylvania and Bryn Mawr College. Her TV program The Salon continues to air locally on TJC.
In our August issue, we launch a new occasional series Off Green with tips on how some people pretend to be protecting the enviornment and how you can do better. You can also read about an exciting collaboration in Jewish Journalism starting this month, pairing the national coverage from The Jewish Daily Forward with Boston news from The Jewish Journal.
Read about all that and more in the Philadelphia Jewish Voice.
