J. The Jewish News Weekly of Northern California

J., the Jewish news weekly of Northern California, is seeking a dynamic Publisher to lead both print and digital operations.  J. is one of the most respected Jewish community newspapers in the United States, reaching approximately 50,000 readers via its weekly print edition, website, e-mail newsletter, and social media.  J. is independently operated, has been publishing since 1895, and is seeking 501c3 status.  Our current publisher is retiring after more than 29 years of service.

The Publisher is responsible for developing innovative commercial strategies, advancing J.’s digital presence, and tightly managing day-to-day operations of the 19-member staff.

The Publisher leads and oversees all non-editorial aspects of the organization including advertising, production, circulation, promotion, finance, and administration. Partnering with our Editor, the publisher reports to J.’s board of directors.

The Publisher establishes and builds relationships within the local Jewish community and its organizations. Along with our Editor, the Publisher will become the “face” of J. as we strive toward increased Jewish community reach and support.

Qualified applicants will have substantial experience running a successful small business, preferably in the advertising-supported media industry (print and digital), including sales and revenue management, and possess strategic leadership skills, commercial creativity, and a keen discipline for running efficient operations and finances.  Experience with non-profit organizations is highly valuable, and knowledge of the diverse San Francisco Bay Area Jewish community is a plus.
