“I am one of those who start their day with the “Bulletin” and the Jewish Telegraphic Agency provides me with that luxury wherever I go New York, Paris, London. Berlin or Jerusalem. To are, as a few the “Bulletin” is a necessity. To me as an old newspaperman, it is a unique piece of journalism. Every line a fact almost every fact happens the other side of the globe.
