Covering Complex Jewish News: Going Beyond 'Is It Good for the Jews?'

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How does a Jewish newspaper reflect and respond to the multiplicity of Jewish perspectives? How can it meet the challenge of getting behind statistics and facts to unearth the human stories? Sam Norich, publisher of The Forward, will address these questions, using The Pew Study as his primary example.
