Algemeiner means "for everybody," and the Algemeiner Journal has been a lifeline preserving Yiddish culture and transmitting it to an American community growing up in prosperity and freedom.
I commend the Gershon Jacobson Jewish Continuity Foundation for its exceptional work in maintaining awareness and understanding of Judaism's past and present."
Carolyn B. Maloney- Member of Congress
"The Gershon Jacobson Jewish Continuity Foundation was named for the famous journalist, Gershon Jacobson who in 1972 established the weekly Yiddish-English newspaper, "the Algemeiner Journal." Having known Gershon Jacobson, I respected his commitment to addressing the compelling issues of the time with vision, integrity and moral clarity. The Gershon Jacobson Jewish Continuity Foundation is committed to tackling the most important matters facing the Jewish people, Israel and the survivors of the holocaust. GJCF is also dedicated to preserving the legacy of Jewish institutions and individuals, and bringing the rich 4,000 year Jewish history and vibrant soul to the next generation, serving as an anchor of continuity for future generations.
Everyone associated with the GJCF can be proud of their efforts on behalf of keeping Jewish heritage alive."
