U.S. Yiddish Daily, based in New-York City. The newspaper was founded in 1901 by the politically conservative and religiously Orthodox publisher Jacob Saphirshtein, and editor Peter Wiernik. It was also unique in its support of the Republican Party. In 1916 it reached its peak circulation of 111,000. The same year Jacob Fishman was appointed editor, and under his direction the paper took on a more liberal, intellectual tone. Among its prominent writers, we can mention the poet Jacob Glatstein and the critics Bernard Gorin and A. Mukdoni.
In common with the rest of Yiddish press, the newspaper's readership declined steadily after World War 1. In 1928 it absorbed Yidishes Tagblat, and in 1952 it merged with Der Tog.
It ceased publication in 1971.
