120 Years of The Jewish Daily Forward: Now On Pinterest

Image by The Forward Archives

This year, The Jewish Daily Forward is celebrating our fulfillment of the Jewish blessing — “ad meah v’esrim!” — and marking our 120th year as the leading Jewish publication in the world.

To celebrate, we invite you to to view, interact with, and comment on our new Pinterest board, 120 Years of the Forward. Pinterest provides a forum for people to interact with the Forward’s content in a new way. Each picture is paired with a related article from the Forward to allow for a deeper understanding of the when and where the photo was taken, and users can “pin” articles or photos they love for their friends to enjoy.

Here, you will find all of the photos from our book A Living Lens: Photographs of Jewish Life From the Pages of the Forward.

This Pinterest board is designed to give our community a way to connect to their heritage and celebrate our rich and vibrant Jewish culture. The 120 years of photographic history that has been saved and digitized is both broad and fascinating: in these photos, you will discover images from the beginnings of the state of Israel, mass protests, a letter that Czar Nicholas II of Russia wrote to The Forverts asking for advice, a photo of Chasidic leaders meeting with President Reagan, Woody Allen throwing some serious side eye, and much more.

Come see our collection here.

I hope you appreciated this article. Before you go, I’d like to ask you to please support the Forward’s award-winning, nonprofit journalism during this critical time.

Now more than ever, American Jews need independent news they can trust, with reporting driven by truth, not ideology. We serve you, not any ideological agenda.

At a time when other newsrooms are closing or cutting back, the Forward has removed its paywall and invested additional resources to report on the ground from Israel and around the U.S. on the impact of the war, rising antisemitism and the protests on college campuses.

Readers like you make it all possible. Support our work by becoming a Forward Member and connect with our journalism and your community.

Make a gift of any size and become a Forward member today. You’ll support our mission to tell the American Jewish story fully and fairly.
