n the past month more
than 2,600 Ann Arborites
received copies of an up-
dated and expanded "Guide
to Jewish Life" which details
' the organizations, per-
sonalities and institutions
that make up the Jewish com-
munity in Washtenaw
County.
For Nina Gelman, 26,
editor of the Washtenaw
Jewish News which publish-
ed the guide, the newest
publication best exemplifies
the changes she's been slow-
ly making since she assumed
the editorship of the WJN two
years ago. The guide is bigger
than any issue before it; it's
reaching more people than
ever before; it's graphically
and visually more lively; and
it's filled with a mix of infor-
mation, commentary and
feature writing that reflect
Gelman's own journalistic
stamp.
"I certainly had ideas about
what I wanted to do with the
paper," Gelman explains. "In
the last six months especial-
ly, people have begun to be
aware of the changes."
Others agree. "In the past,
the paper had more of a man-
date to be a place where peo-
ple sent press releases. It
printed them and did a good
job of that," says Judith Seid,
Jewish Cultural Society
director. "Nina and
Stephanie Kushner (who un-
til recently served as news
editor) have a different vision.
I think they've made it more
newsworthy."
John Hilton, editor of the
Ann Arbor Observer and a
member of the WJN board,

sees the paper's transforma-
tion somewhat differently.
"Nina has been working on
not merely reporting the
events of the community but
trying to understand them."
Hilton mentions the March
issue of the WJN which
printed an open forum on the
Michigan Daily's editorial
policies toward Israel. "It was
a classic case where a well-
run publication can shed
light on an event almost as

paper has not
gone far enough.
Others look for

releases.

it's happening," Hilton says.
"It was extremely timely."
Claire Bernstein, editor
of the WJN from 1979-
1987, agrees that the paper
has changed substantially.
"When I was editor, it was a
community service. Organiza-
tions submitted news. We had
no reporters. Now I would
consider it rather different,
which is healthy for a
newspaper."
Some readers think the
WJN hasn't gone far enough
in becoming a newspaper,
pointing out that there's little
besides a calendar of events,
the public relations material
by local ogranizations and
some rabbinic commentary.
What began as a mimeo-
graphed community newslet-
ter 13 years ago, has become
a self-supporting, indepen-
dent publication. "Before, it
was definitely very establish-
ment and didn't want to print
anything indicating strife or
