Canadian Jewish News re-launches
Canadian Jewish News, the largest Jewish news organization in Canada will rebrand as a digital-first platform after shutting down operations in April 2020, the company announced last week. It’s the second relaunch for the 61-year-old non-profit, which previously shut its doors in 2013 before gaining enough community support to restart operations within a year.


            CJN is undergoing a full revamp, prioritizing digital content, including email newsletters and several podcasts, and scaling back its print edition from weekly to four times a year.

            The CJN’s new funding model is a mix of online advertising, digital memberships and philanthropy, with some of the donors remaining anonymous. As before, the publication remains independent of any federation or other Jewish institution.

            The CJN now employs seven full-time staffers, including several in a newly created podcast department. That’s less than half of the 16 staffers in April 2020.
