After much consideration, we have made a decision with our partners, the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs and the Women's League of Conservative Judaism, that a print magazine is no longer the best way to reach our constituents so the Fall 2015 issue of CJ Magazine will be the last. We will be taking a closer look at branding and marketing over the coming months to ensure efforts are reflective of today's USCJ, including exploring alternate communications vehicles, and look forward to sharing details of the next iteration of CJ Magazine.
Over the course of eight years, CJ Magazine provided a united voice for Conservative Judaism and a passionate exploration of what it means to be at the center of the movement, winning the 2014 Simon Rockower Award for Excellence in Jewish Journalism from the American Jewish Press Association.
We thank CJ Magazine editors Andrea Glick and Rhonda Kahn for their dedication, hard work and excellence and look forward to sharing news of the magazine’s next iteration following a re-branding initiative.
