expand icon Administrative/Biographical History
*Kinder zhurnal*  and Farlag Matones were both founded by the Sholem Aleichem Folk Institute, an organization established in New York in 1918 to coordinate a secular Yiddish school system.  *Kinder zhurnal*, a children's magazine, was in existence from 1920 to 1981.  Its first editor, Shmuel Niger, served from 1922 to 1948.  The magazine published works by writers such as Mani Leib, Aleph Katz, Jacob Glatstein, Kadia Molodowsky.  Farlag Matones was established in 1925 as a publisher of children's books but became a leading publisher of Yiddish literature and of well-known authors such as Menahem Boraisha, Jacob Glatstein, Chaim Grade, Moses (Moyshe) Leib Halpern, Leibush Lehrer, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Hillel Zeitlin, Aaron Zeitlin. Lippa Lehrer was the manager and leading figure of both organizations, and was editor of *Kinder zhurnal* for a number of years.  The records of *Kinder zhurnal*  and Farlag Matones were combined by Lippa Lehrer, and reflect primarily the years of his involvement.
