NEW YORK (Jun. 13)
The Manhattan Region of the Zionist Organization of America has accepted as a project provision of the JTA daily news service to the Jewish community of Bolivia to help the 4,000 Jews in that Latin American country maintain closer contact with Jews in this country and Israel.
Until recently, the JTA service had received wide circulation in the country through daily broadcasts over a local radio station. It had been considered an important weapon in counteracting intensive Arab anti-Israel propaganda being conducted in Bolivia and elsewhere in Latin America. Bolivian Jewish communal officials advised the JTA that they were unable longer to remit funds to continue the service. As JTA has no budget provisions to cover the cost of such public services, Moses Torczyner, president of the SOA group, made arrangements for its continuation.
