Guests in our Sukkah

By Jane Eisner

When Daniel Treiman, the Forward’s opinion editor, asked for a leave of absence for a couple of months this fall, we decided to mix things up on our Forum page. In a season when it’s traditional to invite guests into a sukkah, why not invite guests to edit our pages?Read More

Happy Birthday to Us!

On May 25, the Forward’s English edition celebrated its 20th birthday. At a time when traditional forms of journalism are under assault, it’s an accomplishment to survive two decades, a joy to have come this far. Thanks to a talented staff, loyal readers and advertisers, and the ever-supportive Forward Association, here’s hoping for 100 more!Read More


Days of Rocks and Guns

By Jane Eisner

The 40th anniversary of the Kent State killings of four unarmed students was commemorated earlier this month, a seminal moment for many of us who came of age during an unpopular war and mounting civic strife. But it’s worth noting that the violence of that bloody spring did not end in Ohio.Read More


Excellence on Deadline, and Off

By Jane Eisner

This is the season when journalists honor their own, and it is my pleasure to report that the Forward is a finalist in three categories for the annual awards given by the Deadline Club, the New York Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. This is a record for us, and a distinct thrill, even if the competition for these awards — which honor the best in New York area journalism in 2009 — is daunting!Read More


Series in Search of a Solution

By Jane Eisner

“For decades, there has been a stalemate: two peoples with legitimate aspirations, each with a painful history that makes compromise elusive. It is easy to point fingers — for Palestinians to point to the displacement brought by Israel’s founding, and for Israelis to point to the constant hostility and attacks throughout its history from within its borders as well as beyond. But if we see this conflict only from one side or the other, then we will be blind to the truth: The only resolution is for the aspirations of both sides to be met through two states, where Israelis and Palestinians each live in peace and security.”Read More

Ippies and Daveys

By Jane Eisner

The excellent work done this year by the Forward staff, in print and online, has been recognized in a big way by two respected organizations. The Forward took home five awards — known as Ippies — at the recent annual dinner of the New York Community Media Alliance, which represents ethnic and community media in the New York area. Even better than the number was the range of work that was honored. Stories from Nathaniel Popper’s superb series “Working Legacy” won both a first place and an honorable mention for coverage of labor. Our design gurus Kurt Hoffman and Richard Harrington won first place for overall design.Read More
