Have I Got a Story for You

Hosted By: Yiddish Book Center (Amherst, MA)

The “Forward,” founded in 1897, is the most renowned Yiddish newspaper in the world, and it published some of the most acclaimed Yiddish fiction writers of all time. Ezra Glinter combed through the archives to find the best stories published during the newspaper’s 125-year history, digging up wartime novellas, avant-garde fiction, and satirical sketches about immigrant life in New York. These stories reveal the challenges that faced Jews throughout this time, including immigration, modernization, poverty, assimilation, the two world wars, and changing forms of Jewish identity.

Presented as part of the Yiddish Book Center’s 2023 Great Jewish Books Club
