Video from the new Hillel president: Eric Fingerhut (no, not JTA’s Eric Fingerhut)

No, not the guy who used to write for JTA from Washington and is now at AIPAC. We mean the former congressman.

Here’s the news brief. And check out his I’m-happy-to-be-taking-the-job video statement.

Ami Eden is JTA’s CEO and editor in chief, responsible for overseeing all aspects of the agency’s operations, including editorial, business, marketing and fundraising. Before joining JTA in the summer of 2007, he served as executive editor of the Forward newspaper and the founding editor of the Jewish Daily Forward Web site. He also worked as an editor of the Jewish Exponent in Philadelphia.
