Join Jodi Rudoren, the new editor-in-chief of The Forward, and Rachel Fishman Feddersen, CEO and publisher, for breakfast and a conversation about the future of Jewish journalism, the Chicago Jewish community, and how the two can best connect.
Jodi, a former Chicago bureau chief of The New York Times, and Rachel will host the gathering at Sketchpad in Chicago on Dec. 13 at 8:30 a.m. (kosher breakfast will be provided). While in Chicago, they’re eager to meet local Jewish leaders and share their vision for revamping The Forward to make it more relevant to national audiences. Rachel hired Jodi this summer to lead a digital transformation of the American Jewish world’s leading publication. Building on The Forward’s legacy of independent, in-depth reporting on politics and culture, and provocative opinion writing from across all spectrums, Jodi is aiming to deepen reader engagement; nationalize the report and audience; and create a dynamic platform for conversation.
She is hoping to hear from you about the problems, gaps and opportunities you see in the Jewish journalism landscape, and the most interesting things happening in Jewish Chicago.
