(December 15, 2020 / JNS) The Canadian Jewish News announced on Monday that it will relaunch its publication in January but will be online only.
The announcement came in a report in The Canadian Jewish Record, a free online volunteer Jewish-news site launched in May to fill the void left by CJN.
CJN folded earlier this year due to financial troubles exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic. Its last print edition was on April 9. The online edition also shuttered.
Yoni Goldstein became editor in 2014 and will continue in the role.
The relaunched outlet will consist of both a new board of directors and donors, Bryan Borzykowski, the new president of the board of directors, told CJR. Fundraising and ad revenue will be revenue generators.
Additionally, CJN will seek sponsors for content such as podcasts, videos and articles.
Meanwhile, CJR’s founders, “publisher Bernie Farber and editor Ron Csillag, a former CJN reporter, never intended it to become permanent,” rather “CJR was meant as a bridge to the CJN’s eventual return, and the two publications will likely work together in the future,” reported CJR.
