The Jewish people have reason to be gratified that the important world-wide news service known as the Jewish Telegraphic Agency has survived the harrowing vicissitudes of recent years and is able to continue to function as the eye of the community. This it could not have done had it not enjoyed the general confidence of the Jewish public who recognize the great service this enterprise has rendered in keeping the world informed of what is happening in Jewish life everywhere.
Your Agency has been an important factor in intelligently presenting to the people of the world the Jewish news. May I extend to you my personal congratulations at this time and the hope that your ever-expanding sphere of importance will never grow less.
We are happy, on this occasion, to recall our close and pleasant association with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, dating from its foundation fifteen years ago, and to congratulate you on your efforts to place before readers of the world accurate and impartial news of Jewish affairs.
Warmest congratulations on the Fifteenth Anniversary of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
Day by day and year by year I read the bulletins of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, and I feel it my duty to send you an appropriate greeting on the occasion of your fifteenth anniversary, and to thank the J. T. A. for so successfully joining the individual Jew with World Jewry by means of its daily news.
There has now been added yet another land to those in which the Jewish situation is perilous. We call to the J. T. A.: “Stand on watch, ready to sound the alarm throughout the world!” That will be its historic reward.
