Statement of Purpose

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Daily Bulletin will be the conveyor of the World’s Jewish news. It will report impartially, concisely and authentically, all Jewish facts. It will be a connecting link between the Jewish communities of all states in the Union. Today, the Jewish Community of Chicago does not know what the Jews of Boston are doing and the Jews of the West are un-informed of what is happening in Jewish life in the East.

The Jewish Daily Bulletin will fill the much felt need of a proper diseminator.

By subscribing to the cable and telegraphic news service of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the Jewish Daily Bulletin will be enabled to present to its readers accurate reports of Jewish events from all parts of the globe within 24 hours of their occurrence.

The Jewish Daily Bulletin will serve as a stimulating guide and will arouse a great many, who are now indifferent, to a larger interest in Jewish affairs.

The Jewish Daily Bulletin will be independent. It will not propagate any particular philosophy or theory or tendency. It will limit itself to the presentation of facts, leaving to its readers the forming of their opinion.

The Jewish Daily Bulletin will offer its readers a daily survey on Jewish and non-Jewish public opinion throughout the world on Jewish topics.

The Jewish Daily Bulletin will be the clarion to the young American Jew, who is growing up uninformed on contemporary Jewish life to proper understanding and consequently consciousness and responsibility to the Jewish community.

The Jewish Daily Bulletin will be the Jewish mouthpiece and interpreter.

The Jewish Daily Bulletin will acquaint its readers with the manifold activities and undertakings of Jews throughout the world. By giving Jewish news in the right proportions it will enable all thinking non-Jews to perceive Jewish conditions in their true perspective.

The Jewish Daily Bulletin will accurately report all developments in Palestine and in the surrounding mid-eastern countries.
