An Russian Jewish umbrella group is launching a program to help families who are fleeing the war in Chechnya. The Russian Jewish Congress hopes to provide the refugees with lodging and financial help. Other Jewish organizations, including the Jewish Agency for Israel and the Jewish Community Development Fund in Russia, have announced they will participate in the project.
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.
