Help us do our job better by filling out a survey that will tell us what you are seeking from your community newspaper.
We want to hear from you! Of course, your feedback is always welcome — through email, letters to the editor and comments on our online stories. But now we’ve got something special to show how much we care about your views: a 20-question survey that will give us a better sense of who you are, how you read us and what you are seeking from your community newspaper.
A printed version of the survey was included in the Jan. 16 issue of the paper. Or you go to: www.surveymonkey.com/s/jewishexponent to complete the quick and easy questionnaire. Either way, you will automatically be entered into a random drawing to win an iPad Mini or $300.
Last year, 2013, was a period of transition and transformation at the Jewish Exponent. We redesigned our print publication, bringing you a fresher, bolder, cleaner product. We also overhauled our website, where you can find new features, blogs, expanded news coverage, mazel tovs and an interactive community calendar. The result: a big uptick in traffic, and top honors in national and state journalism contests.
The newspaper business is getting tougher and tougher these days, but as we evolve, we continue to be there for you as the “go-to” venue to stay informed and connected with Jewish life in our region. As we look ahead in this new year, help us do our job even better. Play those 20 questions with us.
Thank You, Bob
The Philadelphia Jewish community owes a huge debt of gratitude to Robert Leiter, who has retired after 30 years with the Jewish Publishing Group.
In numerous positions — from reporter to editor of Inside magazine to his most recent role as senior editor at the Jewish Exponent — Bob played a pivotal role in shaping the content and quality of our award-winning publications.
Over the years, he produced countless stories, wrote a popular book column called “Speaking Volumes” and analyzed mainstream media coverage with his “Media Clippings.”
Bob’s contributions to the Exponent went well beyond his journalistic talent as a writer, editor and manager. His knowledge of the history of Philadelphia and its Jews, his institutional memory, his intellectual breadth, his Jewish commitment and his sense of humor will be sorely missed.
We speak for the entire community in thanking Bob for all he has done to help keep our community informed and connected. We wish him only good luck and good health in his retirement.
