Close your eyes, breathe in deeply, now exhale slowly… That was easy, wasn’t it? Not for everyone…
The Canadian Jewish News will keep publishing in print, the paper’s board announced.
The paper’s president, Donald Carr, announced Friday that the board of directors “is happy to confirm that the print newspaper will continue.”
In late April, Canadian Jewry’s flagship paper announced that it would cease publication after 53 years, citing revenue shortfalls. The June 20 issue was to have been its last.
The paper’s offices will move to a new location in Toronto this summer, Carr said.
“That, combined with other adjustments we need to make to our operations, dictate that we pause after the current issue and resume publishing with the August 1 edition,” he said.
The paper hired an outside advisor, Robert Attala, a sales and marketing executive and former publisher of the National Post newspaper.
The CJN “will need new subscribers, and existing subscribers will be asked to accept a higher subscription rate immediately,” Carr stated. “Advertisers, old and new, must commit to advertise on an ongoing basis.”
The paper’s announcement that it would close shocked many in Canada’s 375,000-strong Jewish community and triggered a public outcry
The mass firings announced in April were rescinded but cuts were made to the 50-member staff. Three longtime reporters in the Toronto office were cut, as were some positions in advertising and production in the Toronto and Montreal offices.
