Tribe of Jewish Mags Shrinks: American Jewish Life Folds

febmar08-cover-new.jpgAs we floated yesterday, the Atlanta-based American Jewish Life is shutting down due to financial reasons after seven years of publication. Editor Benyamin Cohen just emailed us with confirmation:

“Unfortunately, this is just not the right economy for a print publication. Newspapers and magazines all across America are struggling to bring in ad revenue and turn a profit.”

Cohen will become the new content director at the Mother Nature Network, a mainstream eco-news Web site that will launch later this year. He will also publish a memoir, My Jesus Year: A Rabbi’s Son Wanders the Bible Belt in Search of His Own Faith, this fall.

The magazine’s stable of freelancers have been told to sell their stories elsewhere.
