For Immediate Release:

Atlanta Jewish Life Magazine was just named the best local magazine in Atlanta by Creative Loafing in their annual "Best of Atlanta" issue which hits newsstands this week.

Here is what they wrote: "You don't have to be Jewish to appreciate ATLANTA JEWISH LIFE. The magazine, which first published in the spring of 2001, comes out every other month and features short, sharply written articles on topics ranging from a Jewish girl's journey to learn more about her infamous mobster uncle to a profile on Jewish comedian (and former Atlantan) David Cross. Editor Benyamin Cohen hasn't missed a beat as he's vested the publication with a young, hip sensibility. The July-August issue's cover, "Jewish Radio Mafia: A Photo Essay," is a brilliant, "Sopranos"-esque photo lineup of 12 of Atlanta's Jewish radio personalities, including 99X's Jimmy Baron and NPR's Lois Reitzes."

"I couldn't be more thrilled," says Michael Jacobson, AJL's publisher since January 2005. "It's gratifying to see other people finally notice the quality we're trying to achieve."
