Esther D. Kustanowitz is a writer, editor and consultant.  She is a contributing writer at the Los Angeles Jewish Journal and a columnist at J. The Jewish Weekly of Northern California.  Esther was founding editor and contributor at GrokNation.com, has written for Modern Loss, Haaretz, JTA, The Jewish Week, The Forward and eJewishPhilanthropy, and has worked with dozens of Jewish organizations.  Esther is endlessly fascinated with the ongoing evolution of the media picture, as how we receive, consume and share content changes.  Esther is working on a book project about life after loss, and is a casual scholar of #TVgoneJewy, a term she coined to describe the increasingly common event of Jewish references and storylines entering otherwise non-Jewishly-themed TV shows.
