Anachnu B’America Editor Let Go


Ori Dinur, 44, founding editor of Anachnu B’America, was let go from the Los Angeles-based Hebrew-language magazine this month for financial reasons, she said.

The editorial position was Dinur’s first foray into journalism; she has also worked in theater, retail sales and the restaurant industry. Dinur had served as the magazine’s editor since its launch in August 2006. Dinur “built this magazine from the ground up and spent days and nights working on it. We are so grateful for her enormous contribution,” said Eyal Shemesh, the current publisher of Anachnu.

Shemesh said 10,000 copies of the glossy are distributed every month to local hubs of Israeli activity, such as supermarkets, restaurants and retail stores.

According to Shemesh, the reason for Dinur’s departure was financial, although a planned reorganization of the business may include a new editorial direction. Rinat Shemesh, Eyal’s wife and a contributing writer and co-publisher of the magazine, will take over the solo editorial position until a replacement is hired.
