The Jew And The Carrot

A Letter to Our Readers

By Jane Eisner and Nigel Savage

Dear Reader,

For nearly a year, the Jew & the Carrot blog has been a partnership between Hazon and the Forward, bringing together the work of the Jewish food movement with exceptional writing and reporting about what we eat and how it is produced and prepared. As online communication continues to evolve, so have our blog and our partnership. We are now excited to present the latest iteration of the Jew & the Carrot.

The Jew & the Carrot will still provide you with the latest from the Jewish food world, including news, recipes, cookbook reviews, interviews with Jewish celebrities, discussion of issues and unique offerings for Shabbat and Jewish holidays, all edited by the Forward’s Devra Ferst. Starting today, you will also be able to read blog posts that come directly from Hazon, designated by a special icon — “Fresh from Hazon” — and brought to you with the understanding that Hazon is solely responsible for that content.

We are excited that this new expression of a beloved blog will combine the insightful coverage you’ve come to expect from the Forward with the chance to continue a discussion about food policy and sustainability issues that Hazon has led for years.

Our work together is just beginning; we look forward to you, our reader, joining the conversation. We will ask you more questions, seek your opinion, and are anxious to hear about what is going on in your community. We hope you will join us!

Jane Eisner, Editor, The Forward
Nigel Savage, Executive Director, Hazon
