Even old socialists have a second act.
The Histadrut labor federation – in an attempt to convey its message of solidarity, equality and social justice – has revived its long-defunct newspaper Davar and re-launched it as an online publication. In addition to news, the site will have worker- based features as well as general interest stories.
Established in June 1925 as the daily newspaper of the Histadrut, with Berl Katznelson as its founding editor, Davar was the paper of choice among Israeli workers. It also had several subsidiary publications for women and children.
