The Algemeiner "was founded in 1972 by famed journalist Gershon Jacobson as Der Algemeiner Journal and was originally published in Yiddish." It's now one of a core of "Jewish" publications, but unlike some leftist publications like The Forward, it's more moderate in its politics. We often link to Israel and BDS-related stories that run in The Algemeiner. In that regard, there's an overlap with our coverage of those issues.
