Born in part out of the need for a working man's paper and out of frustration with those Yiddish papers already being published, the Jewish Daily Forward came to embody, under the leadership of one of newspaper publishing's great men Abraham Cahan, all that was vital, secular and progressive in the Jewish immigrant community not only where it was published in New York's lower east side but ultimately by subscription throughout the entire United States. Everyone from Nobel Laureates to labor union agitators worked for them, resulting in a style unique among both Yiddish and American newspapers. The great Zero Mostel appears to read, first in Yiddish and then in English, a letter to the newspaper as an example of what the newspaper meant to its readers. Its legacy continues to this day as the newspaper continues to publish, and with this documentary, you'll see why this newspaper both was and is so important!
