Jewish Digest, New Monthly, Issued

September 26, 1940
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The first issue of a new monthly, The Jewish Digest, was published today by the Jewish Digest Corporation. The magazine, emulating the format and technique of the Reader’s Digest, contains digests of important articles of Jewish interest gleaned from the press of the world and original articles on a wide variety of timely topics by authors of prominence.

An editorial statement, signed by B.Z. Goldberg and David Goldberg, editor and associate editor respectively, states: “The Jewish Digest is not the organ or mouthpiece of any party, movement or group in the Jewish world.” the editorial statement says.
