Steve Rose: A time to adapt
"Effective Sept. 11, 2020, I am donating The Kansas City Jewish Chronicle to the Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City.
"This will end two cycles of Chronicle ownership by the Rose family in Kansas City over decades, beginning in 1964, with my late father, Stan, and my 99-year-old mother, Shirley. Of course, The Chronicle itself pre-dates the Rose family, having been founded in 1920."
"We intend to ensure its ongoing vitality well into the 21st century."
