I am pleased to announce that two members of the Forward editing team are being promoted to positions that reflect their journalistic strengths and skills.

Dave Goldiner is the new director of digital media. Dave has shared responsibility for the digital team for the past year, and deserves credit for the enormous growth in our Web traffic seven days a week. His hunger for the news and enthusiasm for the Jewish angle knows no bounds, and he will bring that passion to his new position directing the entire digital team. Dave will continue to oversee the Forward Thinking blog.

Abigail Jones is the new senior editor and head of special projects. Abigail has dramatically increased our presence on social media and has displayed great skill in developing new projects and special sections, such as the popular Inspired Rabbis project and the Aging section. She will now focus on developing projects across print and digital platforms with all section editors, and will bring new vitality to signature projects such as the Forward 50. Abigail remains the editor of the Sisterhood blog and will be the newsroom’s point person on Web design.

Please join me in congratulating them both.

The Jewish Daily Forward welcomes reader comments in order to promote thoughtful discussion on issues of importance to the Jewish community. In the interest of maintaining a civil forum, The Jewish Daily Forwardrequires that all commenters be appropriately respectful toward our writers, other commenters and the subjects of the articles. Vigorous debate and reasoned critique are welcome; name-calling and personal invective are not. While we generally do not seek to edit or actively moderate comments, our spam filter prevents most links and certain key words from being posted and The Jewish Daily Forward reserves the right to remove comments for any reason.
