Joshua Burstein: "Jewish Review Extremely Relevant"

My younger brother Joshua lives with his wife and three children in Eugene, Oregon. Earlier this year, he entered a writing contest sponsored by The Jewish Review, a local community newspaper that serves all of Oregon and southwestern Washington and is devoted to Jewish issues. The theme of the contest was “Why do community newspapers such as the Jewish Review remain important for their readers and for the communities they serve?”

Josh was one of the two winners of the essay contest.

In his essay, Jewish Review Extremely Relevant, he talks about our father's devotion to justice and how that shaped him, as well as the need for Jewish community newspapers in places where there aren't many Jews. If you want to learn a little bit about my younger brother's background (and my own as well), go read the article. I think you'll be glad you did.

And Josh? Congratulations!
