eJewish Philanthropy to join Jewish Insider

Thirteen years ago, Dan Brown launched with the goal of highlighting all the latest happenings in the world of Jewish philanthropy and as a home for original thought pieces on key issues facing the community and the philanthropic sector. Today, eJewish Philanthropy | eJP is a must read resource for foundation professionals, donors, organizational leaders and entrepreneurs working in the philanthropic space. 

Jewish Insider launched six years ago with the goal of convening a daily conversation around the news for leaders at the intersection of politics, business, philanthropy and the Jewish community.  

As eJewish Philanthropy looks ahead, we are excited to announce that will now be a part of the Jewish Insider family. 

What these two publications share is a unique focus on providing new and relevant information to the most actively engaged readers in their coverage area – not to the exclusion of others, but rather with the understanding that if successful with serving those core readers, these publications are an accessible pathway for anyone interested in becoming more engaged. 

The goal of eJP under Jewish Insider will be to capture, convene and drive the daily conversation in the Jewish philanthropic sector each day and to introduce new individuals and readers to the space, thereby expanding the conversation. 

eJP will be increasing its original news reporting and grow its opinion section, which will live on the newly redesigned, launching next week. 

eJP will also be re-launching a new curated daily newsletter called Your Daily PhilSign up here if you are not already subscribed to eJP’s daily blast. 

While there will be more original reporting, what won’t change is eJP’s commitment to bringing you all the latest happenings in the world of Jewish philanthropy and to continue to be a home for a wide range of voices to weigh in on the pressing issues of our time. 

Dan Brown will be eJP’s Editor-at-Large in this new phase for the publication he built. 

And we are happy to announce that Helen Chernikoff, who was most recently The Forward’s News Editor and who previously worked at the New York Jewish Week and Reuters, will be joining the eJP and Jewish Insider team as a senior philanthropy reporter. 

We will be further expanding eJP and Jewish Insider’s philanthropy team in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

Lastly, to eJP’s existing reader community, we understand that in any transition there will be adjustments. Longtime readers might not agree with all our updates, and we may well get some things wrong from time to time. Ultimately, eJP is here to serve you, our readers, and we commit to listening and engaging with you along the way.
