Kosher Media Network and jmarketing connections Announce Joint Venture to Create the World’s Largest Jewish/Kosher Integrated Media and Marketing Company

New York, NY (February 2013) – Kosher Media Network (KMN), publisher of Joy of Kosher with Jamie Geller magazine and JoyofKosher.com, the world’s largest kosher food and recipe community, announced a joint venture with jmarketing connections, a dynamic Jewish commerce and marketing company targeting the Jewish audience. Kosher Media Network is now the largest integrated media and marketing company targeting the Jewish and Kosher consumer engaging well over one million consumers annually. 

Together, KMN and jmarketing connections can now reach over 200,000 monthly website visitors, 85,000 email subscribers and over 40,000 Facebook fans. KMN collaborates daily with the most influential food bloggers, personalities and chefs in the Kosher world and jmarketing connections has delivered results-driven advertising and marketing campaigns for over 800 merchants. The two brands attract highly engaged purchasers – not simply casual readers or Web surfers, giving advertisers powerful cross-channel print and online marketing opportunities to the Jewish / Kosher consumer that no other company can match. 

KMN now has a combined reach of over one million Kosher consumers through their Joy of Kosher magazine, JoyofKosher.com website and Quick & Kosher cookbook series and TV show as well as live events and "the store" a new beta e-commerce site. Founded by New York entrepreneur and philanthropist Henry Kauftheil and Jamie Geller, world renowned celebrity chef and best-selling author, KMN has quickly become the #1 trusted Kosher content brand for both consumers and advertisers.

jmarketing connections and its properties jdeal.com, the largest Jewish deal site; metroimma.com, a leading social networking site for Jewish mom; jblasts, an e-marketing and advertising company; and Buy Israel Week, an Israel export promotion initiative scheduled for February 25 to March 3, 2013 will dramatically expand the KMN audience and further the growth of both companies. 

“The addition of jmarketing connections gives KMN greater penetration in New York City and the strongest sales and marketing channel in the Kosher marketplace – we have created the most effective platform to reach the kosher consumer,” says Jamie Geller. Henry Kauftheil, KMN Chairman and Founder added, “The merchants and the brands we represent will benefit from the synergies that this partnership delivers to the market by introducing and promoting their products and services to affluent Jewish consumers who direct the purchasing decisions for their household.” 

“We are so excited to partner with Kosher Media Network. Their digital, print and broadcasting platform is a perfect complement for our future growth,” says Jodi Samuels, co-founder of jmarketing connections. “Ultimately, this is a joint commitment to support the Jewish community and to deliver a maximized return on investment for the companies and brands that we feature every day.”

The new Kosher Media Network brands now include: Joy of Kosher with Jamie Geller website, magazine and food show, Joy of Israel with Jamie Geller, Quick & Kosher, jdeal, jblasts, Metroimma and Buy Israel Week.
