PRESSED: IMAGES FROM THE JEWISH DAILY FORWARD-Ends Dec 2021

By The Museum at Eldridge Street

PRESSED: IMAGES FROM THE JEWISH DAILY FORWARD – Exhibition illuminates the cultural impact of Yiddish-language Forward through archival printing plates at Museum at Eldridge Street

For more than 120 years, the Forward newspaper has given an eager American Jewish audience a unique mix of news, culture and opinion. Published on the Lower East Side beginning in 1897, this Yiddish-language newspaper had a circulation of more than 275,000 in its heyday. The publication had a decidedly progressive bent, often extolling the virtues of labor strikes and fights for rights of new immigrants. Photos were especially popular; the Forward sourced images from their readers’ daily lives (a early adopter of crowdsourcing), printing photos of leading intellectuals alongside everyday Jewish families around the globe.
