A special Jewish Telegraphic Agency-Xerox news center began functioning today at the 34th General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds, bringing the latest information of world-wide Jewish developments to the 1,000 delegates and guests attending the five-day session.
JTA news bulletins, transmitted on an hourly schedule from JTA headquarters in New York by special teletype line to the JTA-Xerox news center at General Assembly headquarters in the Queen Elizabeth Hotel here, are being reproduced on a high-speed Xerox machine, and distributed to the delegates and guests. The news tapes are also being displayed on a JTA wallboard newspaper frame, which speedily became a center of interest for hundreds of delegates. The special service to the participants in the General Assembly was arranged as a public service by the JTA in cooperation with Xerox of Canada, Ltd.
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.
