The Yiddish press was once the most important form of media among Jews. A kind of "paper university," the Yiddish press educated millions of Jews during the 19th and 20th centuries, allowing them to become modern within their own linguistic context. With five daily newspapers reaching millions of readers during its heyday in the 1920s, the Yiddish press was also the largest immigrant press in the history of the United States. This lecture will explore the history and development of the Yiddish press as a popular phenomenon in both the United States and Eastern Europe.
