In his address, Dovid Efune, the editor-in-chief of The Algemeiner, said, “Wherever it is found we will fight the dark defamation of the Jewish people with the bright light of truth. We will not pause nor waver with the knowledge that if we join our hands together in this great effort, we may one day see a world where the tide of hatred starts to recede once and for all.”
Founded in 1972 as a Yiddish broadsheet by veteran journalist Gershon Jacobson, today The Algemeiner publishes a weekly newspaper in English and this ever-popular website.
