By James RaineyMay 12, 2010Few newspapers or magazines escaped 2009 without losses and theJewish Journal of Greater Los Angelessuffered like many others.Operators of the weekly news outlet trimmed staff. They cut salaries 20%. Still, they worriedwhether the Journal — chronicler of a variety of topics including Torah portions, sexualmores, Mideast politics and entertainment industry chatter — would make it to its 25thanniversary next year.But by banking hard on two of the most robust growth trends in 21st century media — niche journalism and philanthropy — the Jewish Journal appears to have extended its lifeexpectancy and expanded its coverage of Jewish life in Southern California.If the experience holds lessons for other ethnic and religious-oriented publishers, it's that youcan do good by being good. But it's just as important to have a business plan, friends in theright places and a target audience with a lot of disposable income.The Journal, its related website and a nascent monthly magazine recently nailed down acritical $800,000 donation that should rejuvenate the organization and guarantee its viabilityfor the foreseeable future.The money came from four philanthropists — Westfield mall Chief Executive Peter Lowy,Internet executive and venture capitalist Art Bilger, cooking oil maker and long-time Journalboard member Irwin Field and a fourth, anonymous, donor.On a $4-million annual operating budget, the contributions will "give it a very stable foundationand allow us to grow all these parts of the operation," said Lowy, who said he expectsadvertising to cover more than 90% of the expenses in future years with ongoing fundraisingto cover the rest."The future for print media isn't the rosiest, but this is a way we can add philanthropy to abusiness enterprise," Lowy said. "This is an experiment in what I would call a communitymedia group. The Journal is very important to the Jewish community. But we think this mightwork for any communal group."The magazine-style Jewish Journal, with its glossy cover and newsprint innards, has beenevolving in the decade since Rob Eshman became editor in chief and, in particular, since itbroke away from the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles in 2005.Eshman has overseen a bolder editorial course, with more lifestyle stories (Sample blog item:"Why is Hollywood hot for circumcision?") and competing political voices than when theJournal relied on the Jewish Federation, with its paying members as subscribers."The Federation is an overpowering old institution. It's very traditional and very reluctant totake a stand," said Bill Boyarsky, a Journal columnist and previously city editor of the LosAngeles Times. "Rob brought a fresh and independent voice."Among the array of columnists Eshman has brought to print: conservative radio host DennisPrager, who recently hit the left for its readiness to invoke images of the Holocaust, andliberal academic David Myers, a UCLA history professor who wrote last year that Jewish
