The Jewish Newspaper Phenomenon Reconsidered

Kings Place, London

National Library of Israel expert Eyal Miller offers an introduction to the rich and vivid history of Jewish newspapers and periodicals over the past 250 years, examining their role in modern Jewish society and culture.

From the wider Jewish world, he will focus on London, a significant centre of the Jewish press for over two centuries. Eyal will also examine London from afar. From a Yiddish daily published in New York, a Spanish language weekly published in Buenos Aires and a Hebrew daily published in Tel Aviv or Warsaw – all can tell us more about London that we might otherwise expect.
