Last winter, the Forward adjusted its printing schedule to try to better serve our readers. Now we are able to further upgrade our service while providing a newspaper that is even fresher, more lively and always original.

Beginning with this issue, the Forward moves up its publication schedule by one day, closing late afternoon on Wednesdays, with the expectation that most of our readers will receive their copies by the weekend. This change is made possible by our move to a new printing plant that also will expand the color capabilities in the paper and create a crisper, cleaner product.

With this change, you will find the complete contents of each week’s edition appearing online, at www.forward.com, by Wednesday evenings, a day earlier than before.

Our aim is to stay relevant, to tell the Jewish story in America with the same verve, passion and professionalism that has guided this newspaper for more than a century. Only now you should receive it all a day earlier.

As always, you are welcome to write to us at feedback@forward.com if you have any concerns.

Thank you,

Jane Eisner
Editor
