Jewish Socialism in the United States, 1920-1948
The political influence of Eastern European Jews.
A handful of organizations of the Jewish Socialist movement still exist today, though with much diminished membership. These include the Workmen's Circle, the Forward(which now publishes English and Yiddish weeklies), the Jewish Labor Committee,Jewish Currents, the Labor Zionist Ameinu; and the Socialist Zionist youth movementsHabonim-Dror and Hashomer Hatzair. With the exception of the youth movements, these organizations and publications no longer define themselves explicitly as Socialist, but many continue to work for social justice.
