THE "FORWARD" — YESTERDAY: On the wind-
swept mountain heights of Western Galilee, that command
a magnificent view of the northern coastal plain of Israel
and the blue Mediterranean beyond, there stands a settle-
ment built by the Jewish Daily Forward of New York with
the financial help of its readers. Scenically and climatically
it is in one of the loveliest areas of Israel.
This is the Ilon settlement. The colony -lies close to the
Lebanese border, and is strategically of great value for the
defense of Israel. Acknowledgement of the Forward's role
has been given by Israel in an attractive booklet telling the
story of how the paper financed the establishment of thi-
new settlement.
THE "FORWARD" — TODAY: This is but one of the
examples of the Forward as a "giver." Since its existence,
the Yiddish newspaper has been contributing its profit for
Jewish causes. It has also helped to finance the establish-
ment of Kfar Blum, the settlement in Israel named after
Leon Blum, the Jewish socialist premier of France, whom
the Petain government delivered to the Nazi authorities
during Hitler's occupation of France; he was kept by the
Nazi regime in the Buchenwald concentration camp and
was liberated by the Americans entering Germany.
The Forward also sent as a gift to the Histadrut in
Israel several modern linotype machines to teach
youngsters modern linotype setting and printing. It also
made other significant contributions to Israel before and
after the establishment of the Jewish state, and generous
contributions to the Arbeiter Ring schools and other cul-
tural institutions in the United States.
Now the Forward is no longer in a position to be a
"giver." The paper must struggle for its own existence be-
cause of lack of advertising, mounting inflation, and other
circumstances. It is today the only Yiddish daily newspaper
in the U.S. and its influence is still strong. However, it is
now compelled to appeal for financial aid to its readers and
to Jewish institutions. It is conducting a fund-raising cam-
paign for $600,000 to be raised between now and April
1982, when the newspaper will celebrate the 85th year of
existence.
COMMUNAL OBLIGATIONS: The readers have
during recent years answered generously the appeals of the
Forward for aid. Not so generous are the Jewish organiza-
tions in terms of advertising in the paper.
As a national cultural institution helpful to American
Jewry'in combatting anti-Semitism in the United States, in
strengthening Jewish continuity, in bringing masses to
demonstrations against Soviet treatment of Jews, in par-
ticipating in various efforts for Israel, and in devoting its
pages to promoting Jewish culture, the,Forward is entitled`
to financial aid from the Jewish federations.
The inclusion of the Forward in the United Cultural
Appeal would not only be justified but add to the prestige of
the National Foundation for Jewish Culture. It would be in
line with the obligations of the Jewish federations to sup-
port institutions which serve American Jewry culturally
and otherwise. It would relieve the Forward from being
compelled to seek assistance through its own fund-raising
campaigns, and would guarantee the continuation of this
only Yiddish daily newspaper for many years to come.
