The Jewish Star, the quality Jewish newspaper in NY metro, is considering candidates for its top editorial position. The current editor is stepping down to devote more time to the publications business side. The position requires community news experience and familiarity with the sensitivity to Jewish issues. Jewish Star readers are primarily (though not exclusively) Modern Orthodox Jews with a strong attachment to Israel. The editor will seek out and initiate story ideas, assign and write articles, edit staff and freelance submissions, and work with the Publisher on planning print and digital products. The Jewish Star covers Jewish news on Long Island and in New York City, with supplemental coverage of Israel and Jewish America. While The Jewish Star's circulation has primarily been on Long Island, it is about to embark on a major expansion into New York City. The Jewish Star is an 18-year old division of Richner Communications Inc, a 140-employee family-owned company that publishes more than 30 community newspapers and shopping guides on Long Island and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Riverdale Press. It maintains its own printing operation and more. Interviews will be conducted over the next few weeks, so candidates should respond in a timely manner - with a cover letter, resume, writing samples and salary objectives, to: Publisher@TheJewishStar.com'
