All men of goodwill, of whatever race or creed, who are interested in the present and future of Jewry, must wish increase of influence to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. May it long continue its beneficent labors in the cause of Israel’s welfare.


At the moment when the Jewish Telegraphic Agency is celebrating its 15th anniversary, in the presence of the greatest living scintist, the pride of world Jewry, renowned for the eminence of his contributions to every branch, of scientific activity, I wish to be spiritually present to testify to the gratitude of Italian Jewry for the work of linking up the scattered members of Israel which is being accomplished by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. We owe it to the J. T. A. that we are able to know every day what is happening in every Jewish community throughout the world.

While in Eretz-Israel is being performed the miracle foretold by the Prophets, and from the four corners of the earth a part of the people of Israel is banding itself together by the Mount of Zion, preparing for the formation of a Jewish spiritual centre in the land of our fathers, the J. T. A. offers to all Jews through the medium of its Daily Bulletins the opportunity of participating in this spiritual unification.

I offer to the Director of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Mr. Landau, and to all his collaborators, my good wishes and cordial greetings.


My community joins me in congratulating you cordially on the admirable work and thanking you for invaluable services rendered Jewry throughout the Jewish world.


I should not like to be missing from the ranks of those who have publicly expressed their gratitude to the J.T.A. on the occasion of its 15th birthday for the service it has rendered Judaism in this time so laden with sorrow. You have woven a tie, above all countries and parties, a tie around Jewry as a whole. You have stimulated to action Jewish energies and carried Jewish thought from one end of the globe to the other. You have exercised an enlightening and clarifying influence within and without our community and straightened out various differences. For this you deserve thanks and help from all of us. May your hands remain strong and your strength not weaken.
