Karen Borger was an incredibly important asset to Jewish Rhode Island. When I, as editor of The Jewish Voice, hired her, I knew immediately I had found a gem. Not only was Karen incredibly enthusiastic, her energy, knowledge of the Jewish community, and marketing savvy helped to ensure the newspaper’s viability. With her advertising and marketing prowess, the paper became a more desirable commodity for readers and advertisers, alike.
I wholly understand her decision to retire, but it’s a loss to the community. Enjoy your free time, Karen, and thank you again, from your very grateful former colleague!
Former editor of The Jewish Voice & Herald and later The Jewish Voice
