‘presidents Conference’ Committee Urges Streng Thening of J.t.a.

A special committee on the Jewish telegraphic Agency set up by the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations reported to the Conference that JTA was an “important instrumentality” and recommended that it “be strengthened as much as possible by means of subscriptions and grants wherever feasible.”

George Maislen, president of the United Synagogue of America and chairman of the special committee, advised in his report that the organizations affiliated with the Conference should each review its relationship with JTA with this purpose in mind. The committee report described JTA further as “an essential tool for Jewish leadership in our time.”
