Eight years after its initial release, Yaldah Magazine, the successful Orthodox publication written by Jewish girls for Jewish girls continues to grow and in response to reader request, is switching over from a quarterly to a monthly format.
“From the very beginning, our readers told us that putting out four magazines a year just wasn’t enough,” Leah Caras, founder and publisher of Yaldah, told VIN News. “We have had a great response to the magazine and girls tell me that they read each issue over and over again. While the weekly Jewish magazines do publish their own kids’s magazines, they just can’t compare to a magazine that is written exclusively by girls, for girls.”
Mrs. Caras published the first issue of Yaldah in 2004 when she was just thirteen years old. The first run of Yaldah consisted of 150 copies and was completely sold out. Just one year later, Yaldah was printing double the number of issues in order to accommodate its reader base. By 2005, Yaldah’s first editorial board, which consisted of thirteen girls, was created, with each member doing her part to create a magazine for young Jewish girls.
