Editors Come and Go, but Peres Keeps on Running

By now you may have heard … I am leaving the Forward next month to become the managing editor of JTA.

This isn’t the time for any long goodbyes. I just wanted to say this: When I started working here nearly seven years ago, Reform Jews didn’t spend their conferences davening and trying on tefillin, Conservative rabbis were supposed to be straight and didn’t perform gay marriages, and Joe Lieberman was still a Democrat.

But some things never change: Shimon Peres was and is running for president.
