Pincus Calls JTA ‘important Tool’ for Establishing Israel-diaspora Relations

Defining the Jewish Telegraphic Agency as an “important tool in bringing together Israelis and Diaspora Jews,” Jewish Agency Executive chairman Louis A. Pincus yesterday urged Israeli editors to make the fullest possible use of JTA news. Mr. Pincus, who also heads the Agency’s immigration department, also told Israeli editors and reporters to make great use of correspondents abroad to tell the Israeli public more about Diaspora Jewish life. He spoke at a meeting sponsored by the Federation of Jewish Journalists devoted to the topic ” Affinity Between Israeli and World Jewry.” Mr. Pincus urged the Israeli press to show greater interest and understanding of Diaspora Jews. “Jewish existence as a nation will be endangered If there is not an identification between all parts of the Jewish nation, especially between Israel and the Diaspora.” he said.
