The Yiddish Press in Israel: A Minority Press in its own Nation State (1948-2008)
May 26 2009


Rachel Rojanski, Associate Professor, Department of Jewish History, University of Haifa

This talk analyses the development of the Yiddish Press in the State of Israel during the last 60 years and discusses the following questions: Was the Yiddish press in Israel an immigrant press that renewed itself with every wave of immigrants? Was it a minority press that had to find its place in its own nation state? Or, was it perhaps simply part and parcel of a diverse Israeli press?
