Efune has served as Algemeiner’s editor-in-chief and CEO since 2008, when he oversaw the relaunch of the newspaper as an English-language newspaper. The Algemeiner began in 1972 as a Yiddish weekly. Last month he was honored at an Algemeiner gala, but his plans to leave were not announced.

Prior to founding The Sun in 2002, Lipsky served as editor-in-chief of Forward beginning in 1990. Lipsky, a neoconservative, was forced to leave that position in 2000, reportedly due to his political differences with the board, who replaced Lipsky with JJ. Goldberg, whose liberal leanings were more in line with Forward’s socialist roots.

In its first iteration in the early 2000s, the Sun was known for its conservative leanings and has continued in that vein in recent years, publishing opinion pieces from a list of conservatives.
