We are deeply saddened to inform our readers of the passing away of Joseph Aaron, the longtime publisher and editor-in-chief of the Chicago Jewish News, for which he also wrote a weekly column.
“Aaron, 64, died of a suspected heart attack Nov. 16 outside a restaurant in Jerusalem . . . He lived in Jerusalem while also maintaining a home in the West Rogers Park neighborhood, his brother said.” ~ Bob Goldsborough, Chicago Tribune Obituaries, Nov 27, 2019, 5:36 pm (Please use this link to view the full obituary).
We will publish a final, commemorative issue of The Chicago Jewish News in the coming weeks and will post the issue to this site.
