Jewish Las Vegas Is A Feudal Town

I expect a Jewish newspaper to return to Las Vegas around Passover.

It will be called The Las Vegas Jewish Ink. It has no website yet.

“The Las Vegas Jewish Reporter” was closed by the local Federation last year.

Jewish Las Vegas is a feudal society. A few billionaires call the shots (some of the world’s wealthiest Jews live there, such as Sheldon Adelson of the Venetian) and the community is usually happy to follow their directions.

What troubles the Las Vegas Jewish Federation troubles most non-profits. There’s a lack of oversight. There’s not an engaged lay board. They’re not inspired and committed. They have no mission.
