The Forward Relaunches Its Yiddish Site
Posted: 1/25/2013 | By: Hazel Sheffield | Columbia Journalism Review
The 116-year-old, Yiddish-language edition of The Forward
is scaling back its print operations from weekly to biweekly to redirect resources to a revamped, Yiddish-language website. From February 4, Forverts will live primarily at yiddish.forward.com
, to be updated daily with a mix of the paper’s existing news features and new Yiddish audio reports from freelance journalists in seven cities around the world, from Buenos Aires to Melbourne to Moscow.
