To say what Zachary said below is like to say that there is no need for NPR
because there are many other commercial stations that do similar things.

The role of JPS in Jewish life was not limited to being only a source of
subventions for Jewish-interest texts and their authors; JPS was also the
publishing institution of, for and by the Jewish people in this country.

It is the disappearance of the later that I bemoan.

JPS's devolution is mark of failure of the Jewish communal leadership and
its imagination precisely at the zenith of evolution of Jewish community in
the United States and will speed up the fragmentation of the latter.
