For 25 years, Larry Brook has covered the Jewish communities of the South, writing about everything from Jewish community events to Christian Zionism to church-state issues to Southern Jewish history. There has never been a shortage of stories, from the compelling to the unusual, to fill the pages of Southern Jewish Life, which formerly was the Southern Shofar and Deep South Jewish Voice. This session will include many anecdotes, as well as a discussion of how to properly and fairly cover a community where one is an active participant, the ethics of printing certain controversial stories, and the role of an independent media within the Jewish community.
