‘Farbrengen Magazine,’ popular among many US Shluchim for its full color design, Jewish content and customizable format, has recently unveiled its brand new look.
Produced by Los Alamitos, California Shliach Rabbi Shmuel Marcus, the publication caught the eye of Lifestyle Europe Magazine publisher Jarred Sundel, who contributed to its brand new look.
Sundel, who has worked on Warner Brothers and DreamWorks projects, teamed up with designer Nechama Marcus, editor Rabbi Shmuel Marcus and photographer Levi Tenenbaum, to form a new style of magazine that will be modern and sophisticated, yet true to the ideas of Torah.
The new format is expected to reach some 250,000 people through 20 different publication names that include “Jewish Homemaker,” “Boulder Jewish News,” “Holiday Times,” and “Chabad Times.”
The new design allows for shluchim to create their own name for their local magazine. Shluchim that have already used this feature include locations such as Manalapan, NJ, Davenport, IA, Park Slope, NY, Coram, NY, Bonita Springs, FL, Brooklyn, NY, Kansas City, MO, Omaha, NB, Miami Beach, FL, Tallahassee, FL, Hoboken, NJ, Toledo, OH, Riverdale, NY, Grand Rapids, MI, Minnetonka, MN, Minneapolis, MN, St. Paul, MN, Northbrook, IL, Satellite Beach, FL, Los Angeles, CA, Tulsa, OK, Cheadle, UK, Westminster, CO, Orange County, CA, and Houston, TX.
All these changes “make shluchim look very good in the eyes of their readers,” says Marcus. “The magazine is a great way to send people not just a simple holiday guide, but a publication that shows what you do, and why you do it.”
The next issue comes out for Chanukah.
