Jewish South Hits the Newsstand

According to Bob Menaker, Editor of Jewish South, "...It is easy for two Jews almost anywhere in the South to connect in far fewer than six degrees of separation."

Jewish South premiere issue features Charleston Chef Marcie Rosenberg and Memphis kosher barbeque. The magazine profiles Southern Jews who have made a difference in their community. And if you are looking for a date for the season or beyond, there's a matchmaking guide.

Jewish South magazine is published by the Atlanta Jewish Times, a member of the Jewish Renaissance Media family.
