Forward Is Launching A Games Section. Thank Us Later.

If you thought Mahjongg was just for your bubbe in Boca — think again.

We’ve just launched an exciting new games feature on our website. So yes, that’s right. Just as you’re getting your daily fix of Jewish news, you’ll be able to try your hand at an array of 25 Jewish-y games, whether Mahjongg or Solitaire, Bridge or Sudoku — all at

“Board games in general, and Mahjongg and Bridge specifically, have a very long and storied history in American Jewish culture,” said Dan Friedman, Executive Editor of the Forward. “We felt that adding them to the Forward site would give our users easy access to a new fun activity.”

The Forward is reader-supported. That means we fund our journalistic activities through subscriptions, donations and advertising. Now, our users have an opportunity to play (for free, of course) while helping support our journalistic mission.

So check out the action at You’ll thank us later.
