Years ago, when Jewish themed magazines were in short supply, there was an appreciation for the thoughtful articles and essays that arrived in the mail monthly. Sadly, this is no more.
While some of its writers have migrated to the internet and other printed media, it just is not the same. Some have labeled the cross-currents blog as a successor, but in no way does it rival the JO of yesteryear. Reading the JO gave one a sense of hashkafic security, as all the content was pre-approved by its Rabbinic board.
You would need to wait a full month to read the follow-up letters to the editor! Something unimaginable in our electronic media age.
If I recall correctly, Agudah has stated that the cost associated with producing the magazine led to its demise. My suggestion would then be to have the magazine produced digitally, then emailed as a PDF to the subscriber base.
