The Jewish Daily Forward

Launched as a Yiddish-language daily newspaper on April 22, 1897, the Forward entered the din of New York’s immigrant press as a defender of trade unionism and moderate, democratic socialism. It fought for social justice, helped generations of immigrants to enter American life, broke some of the most significant news stories of the century, and was among the nation’s most eloquent defenders of democracy and Jewish rights.
The newspaper’s editorial staff included, at one time or another, nearly every major luminary in the then-thriving world of Yiddish literature, from the beloved “poet of the sweatshops,” Morris Rosenfeld, to the future Nobel laureates Isaac Bashevis Singer and Elie Wiesel.
In 1983 the paper cut back to a weekly publishing schedule and launched an English-language supplement.
In 1990 the Forward Association, the newspaper’s non-profit holding company, made the decision to remake the English-language Forward as an independent weekly newspaper committed to covering the Jewish world.
The Forward family of newspapers continues serve together as the voice of the American Jew and the conscience of the community.
