In this presentation, Samuel Norich, president of the Forward Association, the not-for-profit publisher of the Forward and the Forverts, will provide an overview of the role the Yiddish Forward has played for American Jews for the past 120 years. He will examine the features and innovations that made it the most widely read Jewish publication in the world for the first six decades of the 20th century, and now make it a resource for historians and others delving into the Jewish communities of America and Europe of those times.
Presented by Jewish Genealogical Society, co-sponsored by YIVO
