One of the key collecting strengths of the Price Library of Judaica is the range and depth of its periodicals. The Library has over 500 current titles and an equal number of discontinued titles, many of which are now scarce.

Di Prese : 1918-1928
Buenos Aires, Argentina
215 p.

This anniversary issue celebrates 10 years of the Argentinian Yiddish language newspaper, Di Prese from its foundation in 1918 to 1928. During the 1920s the newspaper assumed a leftist orientation which became more Zionist in outlook after the Second World War. It continued to be published until the 1970s. The Yiddish press in Argentina was very successful and supplied serious reading. Di Prese eflected much of Jewish cultural life in Argentina, featuring famous Yiddish writers such as Mimi Pinzón. The hardcopy of this jubilee edition is held by the Price Library of Judaica and New York Public Library; an online edition is available as part of a UF Libraries mini-grant project to digitize a set of 30 anniversary issues of Jewish newspapers in a collection of over 200 such newspapers held in the Price Library of Judaica.
