Yosef Abramowitz plans to step down as CEO of Jewish Family & Life. Abramowitz, who co-founded the publishing company in 1996, said he sought to redefine his role at JFL after he and his wife last month adopted an AIDS orphan from Ethiopia, their fifth child. The winner of the 2004 Covenant Award for Excellence in Jewish Education, Abramowitz will continue as JFL’s CEO until a replacement is found, and after that will continue as editor in chief of the company’s four print publications and dozen Web offerings.
