Samuel Norich "The Jewish Press, A Century Ago Today"

Sam Norich, President of the Forward for nineteen years, contends that even as the
lives of American Jews have been transformed in the last hundred years, the Jewish
press continues as a key instrument of community. But the American Jewish press has
largely failed to adapt to the digital revolution and now faces fiscal and generational
challenges. What can be done to save it, and what is the role of journalism that other
institutions are incapable of playing?
