Editorial policies and views

Its editorial views, opinions, and policies strictly reflect the positions and policies of Agudath Israel of America and Agudath Israel's leadership body the American Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah ("Council of Torah Sages.") Its views on Orthodox Jewish education are based upon the activities and educational policies of the rabbis that guide Torah Umesorah - National Society for Hebrew Day Schools.

History

The origins of the American Yated are to be found in the history behind the establishment of its direct Israeli counterpart, Yated Ne'eman (Israel) (which was itself established over differences of editorial opinion with Hamodia) . In addition, the American Haredi rabbis were searching for an alternate mouthpiece for their views since the widest read Orthodox Jewish weekly in the New York area, The Jewish Press was privately owned, too independent, and expressed more of a pro-Israel Religious Zionist and Modern Orthodox point of view, and the widely read UJA supported The Jewish Week was open to non-Orthodox articles and editors, who were often opposed to the views of Haredi Judaism. In the 1990s the United States edition of Yated severed its relationship with the Israeli edition over perceived conservative religious-leanings at the Israeli paper.

The current publisher is Rabbi Pinchos Lipschutz, who resides in Monsey, New York.

Significance

The publication and survival of the Yated reflects the rise and strength of a unique English-speaking Haredi community in the United States that sees itself as independent from the non-Orthodox institutions of previous Jewish generations. Its articles, editorials, photos and advertisements are all strictly controlled to reflect and promote the growth of the American yeshiva world, through institutions such as Beth Medrash Govoha (Lakewood yeshiva) in New Jersey, and other institutions in Brooklyn such as Yeshiva Torah Vodaas and Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin, and Yeshivas Ner Yisroel in Baltimore along with many other Haredi educational, charitable, communal, and political organizations that advertise and ensure that their leadership, activities and accomplishments are conveyed in print.

Link to Israeli politics

The American Yated reports Israeli news extensively, keeping track of social trends, political developments, and military affairs that concern the State of Israel. In its political stance it tends to follow the party line of the Degel HaTorah party [5] as is evidenced by the frequent publication of photos extolling the activities of Degel HaTorah's main present-day leaders, Rabbis Aharon Leib Shteinman and Chaim Kanievsky.

The name

Directly based on its Israeli counterpart, the name of the Yated is based on the Hebrew phrase "yated ne'eman" which literally refers to a peg strongly anchored in the ground, and is used figuratively to describe a secure connection or something which can be relied upon. The name was supposedly given by Rabbi Yaakov Yisrael Kanievsky (1899–1985) and comes from Isaiah 22:23, "ותקעתיו יתד, במקום נאמן", translated as "And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place", or as "I will drive him like a peg in a firm place".
