Future Plans:
We do hope one day to have a quarterly print edition. Also, we would hope some day to be able to put up a digital archive of all the past issues of the former New Mexico Jewish Link, starting with available .pdfs, and conceivable working our way back to digitizing all the old copies.

By signing up, you'll get access to the full archive of everything that's been published before on this site, beginning in March 2024, and everything that's still to come. Your very own private library.
