The number of books in Yiddish distributed in Russia for Jewish readers during the past five years reached 765,000 copies, according to the representative of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency here. These were copies of 170 books published during this period.
Alphabets were compiled for national minorities who, before the revolution, did not have their own alphabets. A newspaper is being published for the benefit of the Caucasian mountain Jews, the chairman of the publishing office stated.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
