Federation’s executive director clarifies position

Dear Editor:

We were concerned by a recent posting on your website concerning the apparent lack of cooperation in the community with the Crescent City Jewish News.

On behalf of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans I would like to clarify.

Jewish Federation welcomes all media that promotes and publicizes the Jewish community in New Orleans. We happily cooperate with all media and give equal access to media representatives at our events and regarding news about the community. We do not see any media as competing with Jewish Federation, our websites and newsletters.

Rather, the more exposure and media material about this wonderful Jewish community, its congregations and organizations, the better for all of us.

In that spirit of openness and cooperation we wish the Crescent City Jewish News every success and to grow from strength to strength.

Sincerely,

Michael J. Weil, Executive Director
Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans
