This note is from Susan Berrin, editor-in-chief of Sh’ma Now.
For the past 49 years, readers have turned to Sh’ma to find the widest range of voices in conversation about difficult issues.
During that time, as diverse as our themes have been, all of our issues have had one thing in common: They have been published in print, as a stand-alone journal, and since 2015 as an insert in the Forward. With the Forward’s recent decision to cease print publication, this issue — our 746th since the journal’s founding in May, 1970 — will be the final print edition; going forward, Sh’ma will become a digital-only journal. We will continue to publish a printable PDF each month and to post essays and our simulated Talmud page, NiSh’ma, on line. And we will continue to communicate with you via eblasts — so stay in touch with us ().
