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!
The Jewish Daily Forward was founded on April 22, 1897 as a Yiddish-language daily socialist newspaper for a Jewish American audience. In the 21st century The Forward is a digital publication with online reporting. In 2016, the publication of the Yiddish version changed its print format from a biweekly newspaper to a monthly magazine; the English weekly paper followed suit in 2017. Those magazines were published until 2019. The Forward's perspective on world and national news and its reporting on the Jewish perspective on modern United States have made it one of the most influential American Jewish publications. It is published by an independent nonprofit association. It has a politically progressive editorial focus. The Yiddish Forward (Forverts) is a clearinghouse for the latest developments in the Yiddish world with almost daily news reports related to Yiddish language and culture as well as videos of cooking demonstrations, Yiddish humor and new songs. A Yiddish rendition of the Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah", translated and performed by klezmer musician Daniel Kahn, garnered over a million views. On January 17, 2019, the publication announced it would discontinue its print edition and only publish its English and Yiddish editions online.
