A New Masthead
We hope you've noticed by now that The Jewish Journal has a new masthead outside and a new look inside. The masthead, designed by Carvin Knowles, our digitographer, is bolder, louder and bigger than our previous ones. This isn't by accident. Through the practice of journalism, The Jewish Journal serves what we believe is one of the region's most interesting, influential and dynamic communities, and we wanted a masthead which both proclaims and reflects that.
The paper's new layout, which was overseen by Shelley Adler, our art director, is designed to present information in a clear, creative and orderly way, cutting through the noise that has become so much a part of news delivery these days. (The glossy cover is a holiday treat, until revenues allow for more). The redesign is part of an ongoing process of making sure The Journal remains Jewish L.A.'s most vital and interesting news source. You are always welcome to be part of our mission -- by contributing your opinions, your ideas, your writing.
To that end, our Web site now has an online forum -- Jewish L.A.'s only online forum -- where you can comment on Jewish issues, ideas and institutions. Just go to www.jewishjournal.com and click on the word "Forum." We look forward to reading you. Until then, our best wishes for a very happy Chanukah.
