Later this month, the Forward will launch a partnership with the English edition of the Israeli newspaper Haaretz. Beginning January 24, a special four-page edition of the Forward will be inserted in Haaretz’s Sunday editions.

“For Israeli readers, this will open a wider window to the Jewish world, and especially to the essential relationship between the United States and Israel,” said Jane Eisner, editor of the Forward. “The Forward strives to interpret that relationship and tell the contemporary American Jewish story. And we are thrilled to be able to reach those readers through Haaretz, a newspaper whose standards of journalistic excellence we admire and share.”

The new partnership grows from a long-standing collaboration between the Forward and Haaretz English Edition, in print and online. After months of strategic planning, the two papers are working together to bring the Forward’s award-winning journalism to English speakers in Israel.

“We know that our readers are hungry for more in-depth stories about Jewish culture and the Jewish world, and the Forward excels at this,” said Charlotte Halle, editor of Haaretz English Edition. “By bringing them these stories in print, we think our Sunday edition will become one of the highlights of the week.”
