French JTA Daily News Bulletin Begins Publication; Will Provide Worldwide Coverage

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency will begin publication tomorrow of a French language Daily News Bulletin, it was announced here today by the publisher of the Bulletin, Adam Loss. The bulletin, he said, is designed to serve newspapers and individual readers in France, Belgium, French-speaking Switzerland, and other French-speaking countries. “Like the Jewish Telegraphic Agency Daily News Bulletins in New York and London, the (Paris-based) Bulletin will provide full coverage of Israeli and worldwide Jewish news,” Loss said. The news will deal with the vital issues and developments within the international Jewish community. A JTA Daily News Bulletin appeared in Paris before World War II but was not resumed after the war. “But the need for such a medium,” Loss observed, “has become increasingly apparent with the advent to France of Jews from North Africa after the end of French rule in the Maghreb countries. The present JTA Bulletin is the answer to this need. Loss stated that Alfred Zemmour is responsible for administration, Gerard Fellous is Editor-in-Chief, and that Miss Magda Tobaly is the Bulletin’s writer and translator.
