Seven Things Your Jewish Link Editors Won’t Tell You

1) We like when you catch our mistakes. Why? Because it means you are actually reading the paper! Anyone can catch a typo on the front cover, but only our true fans will notice when we mix up two photo captions on page 47. If you call us out on that, we know you are a real devotee.

2) Does anyone even do the crossword puzzle? We really don’t know. Nobody has ever caught a mistake in it, so it’s possible that nobody does.

3) If an important public figure has to die, we hope it happens on a Monday or Tuesday. It sounds callous, but we go to print on Wednesday night, so breaking news on a Wednesday can really mess with our production schedule. Monday or Tuesday works perfectly, though! Same goes for happy new stories, so please schedule your groundbreaking ceremonies for early in the week.

4) Most Teaneck Doghouse Sportstars are nominated by their own mother. Shh, don’t tell them.

5) We have a soft spot for kidneys. Donating one is a surefire way to land your picture on the cover of the paper.

6) The minyan directory is in tiny print on purpose. The eye doctors in town are happy with the increased business it has generated for them. “My business was slowing down until the minyan directory came out. Now my office is packed with Jewish Link readers who need a stronger prescription to see what time mincha is,” said one local ophthalmologist. Look for the new line of Jewish Link reading glasses in stores soon.

7) Speaking of Jewish Link swag, here are some more items we have in mind:

*Jewish Link cufflinks—obviously.

*Jewish Link bumper sticker—honk if your kid’s picture was in the Schools Section this week!

*Jewish Link keychain—for when you find the perfect house in our open-house chart…and get to it before the builders.
