Norich will describe how America's most respected Jewish media organization has transformed itself from a Yiddish newspaper into a digital medium publishing in English and Yiddish, online and in print, that is increasingly relying on public support. The Forward competes for readers and advertisers with other Jewish media as well as Israeli and American corporate media, at a time when consumer habits are shifting, organizations are less salient, and Jewish literacy grows wider and deeper.
