Meet the Man in Charge of GOOD’s Dos and Learns

There’s an intriguing profile in the Jewish Journal of Josh Neuman, the 40-year-old who this summer stepped into the role of GOOD editorial director and head of programming after all those highly publicized layoffs.

The paper is nominated in the 2012 National Scholastic Press Association category of “Broadsheet 17 or More Pages.” Although several Shalhevet students plan to be in attendance at the November 15-18 San Antonio convention, they are not sure if they will be able to accept an award in person if they win. The Jewish Journal’s Jonah Lowenfeld explains:

The winners in all categories will be announced on November 17… The ceremony takes place on Shabbat, and the school’s rabbis hadn’t decided whether accepting an award would be appropriate.
