Says Jane Eisner, editor of the Forward:

“The Forward weekly edition for Haaretz readers will open a wider window to the Jewish world, and especially to the essential relationship between the U.S. and Israel. No one is better than the Forward at interpreting that relationship and telling the contemporary American Jewish story.”

Jewish Pubs Join Forces: The Forward To Host Zeek

zeek.pngThis week, the weekly Jewish newspaper the Forward announced that will now host Zeek: A Journal of Jewish Thought and Culture on its Web site, TheJewishDailyForward.com.

Forward Editor Jane Eisner spoke with FishbowlNY this week to explain why her pub decided to partner with the cultural publication Zeek and how she feels about competition from other Jewish magazines like the recently launched online magazine Tablet.

“This partnership is something that has been in the works for several months,” Eisner said. “It didn’t come in response to anything else that any other publication was doing.”

New Magazine Launch: Jewish Online Mag Tablet

tablet.pngIn the midst of recent magazine closures and more layoffs, it’s always heartening to see a new pub launch. And even online only content paves the way for more growth within the industry.

So let’s welcome Tablet magazine, a daily online Jewish magazine focusing on news, culture and ideas. The site is a “beefed-up, rebranded, refocused update” of Nextbook.org, explained editor-in-chief Alana Newhouse, in her welcome letter on the site. Launched in 2003, Nextbook.org published Jewish arts and culture writing, up until earlier this year. Now, Tablet takes over its mission and brings something new to the table.

“We’ve expanded our mandate to cover, break, and analyze news and politics, and will work to tie our cultural coverage much more closely to current public discourse,” Newhouse explained. “Even more important, Tablet is not simply a read. On our site, you will find lengthy pieces of in-depth journalism and cultural criticism, fiery blog posts, audio podcasts and video clips, beautiful slideshows, and bits of animation.”

Newhouse, who joined Tablet from Jewish weekly newspaper the Forward, is joined by a formidable team of journalists, including deputy editor Gabriel Sanders, who has worked for the Forward and Vanity Fair and former Gawker editor and New York magazine editor Jesse Oxfeld, who will serve as executive editor.
