I couldn’t be more pleased and grateful to have the honor of serving our community over the last decade. I have watched our publication go through many changes, challenges, leadership and even ownership.
While the ebb and flow of change is something that I have come to appreciate over the last few years, I know that it has cost our community great loss along the way.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all our readers for your support and loyalty to read the news, call our office with news tips and email press releases.
When I become the editor in 2018, my first order of business was to redesign the paper to be more inclusive and feature a diverse pallet of interests. Focus controversial topics on the issue of discussion and the differences of opinions.
Keeping our news fresh and identifying how current events directly affect Jewish Atlanta.
This issue begins a very special volume, it’s the first of our ninety-nineth year of publishing your local Jewish community newspaper.
We are already planning an event you will not want to miss for our centennial celebration. You will not want to miss the experience.
I would like to take this opportunity to reinforce the important role you play, whether you’re a vendor assisting in the production, contributor and writer out there chasing down each story, an advertiser assisting in the financial means needed to print each issue, the amazing staff who works so hard for, for so little, because we believe in our mission; and most of all, our fearless leader and my closest friend, Michael A. Morris, for believing in our community and every one of you enough to steer this publication into its 100th year of making sure that we have an institution whose mission and purpose is, “Keeping Jewish Atlanta Connected.”
Kaylene Ladinsky, Editor & Managing Publisher
