I send sincerest good wishes for the Fifteenth Anniversary of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Better understanding between nations is an urgent need in the world today, and your Agency is doing a great service in helping to bring this about. I wish you more power to carry on your good work!

The establishment of this Agency was indeed important and it has proven its usefulness during these 15 years. Were it not for the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, I do not know how the public, both Jewish and non-Jewish, would be able to follow the world events in relation to the Jews. I find not infrequently, in talking to non-Jewish friends, that they inquire about certain anti-Semitic demonstrations and movements in different countries of the world, and when I ask them how they obtain the information the almost universal answer is “I read the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.” I believe if it were possible to place this publication in the hands of the thoughtful citizens of this and other countries it would have a powerful influence to create a public sentiment against anti-Semitism that would ultimately have great effect and produce desired results.

Congratulations on the fifteenth anniversary of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Your splendid achievement is recognized by all Jewry. Wishing you success in your further endeavors.
