Also, a big welcome to Liz Alpern and Joshua Nathan-Kazis as the incoming director and editor for 2007 – 2009. Kudos to Ilana Sichel and Sarah Braunstein as they conclude two years at the Jewish Student Press Service — the magazine looks more beautiful than it ever did, covers the edgy news that Jewish students want to read, and the organization has once again survived through another debacle of speaking truth to power (read all about it in The Nation).

One thought on “New Voices: The Body Issue

  1. Big kudos to New Voices for running the Stern paper. The magazine and the article’s author, Arielle Reich, deserves tons of credit for putting the story out there. I doubt my University will pay any attention (except maybe spreading condemnation) but it’s an important story nonetheless.
