Di Yiddishe Zeitung, Buenos Aires’ Yiddish daily, resumed publication Friday after suspending the two previous days for lack of funds. The financially hard-pressed newspaper informed its readers that staff member were organizing a cooperative to take over publication and asked for financial assistance.

An ad hoc committee has been formed to try to keep the paper alive. Its members are, among others, Zvi Fainguersch, former president of the Buenos Aires Jewish Community Council, Marcos Korenhendler, vice-president of the Council, Herzl Gesang, vice-president of DAIA and Lazaro Rubinson, president of the Argentine Zionist Organization.
