The world conference of Jewish journalists announced at its closing session here tonight the establishment of a World Union of Jewish Journalists which will be open to membership by professional organizations and individuals from all countries. Annual dues of $10.00 will be levied.

The conference, attended by 75 delegates from 13 countries adopted a resolution pointedly urging Soviet authorities to permit Russian Jews to read “their own newspapers written by Jewish colleagues in Russia.” Other resolutions hailed Jewish journalists and the free world press for their objective coverage of Israel’s struggles and called on Jewish writers everywhere to support Israel’s search for lasting peace. Isaac Rembah, chairman of the closing session, extended greetings to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency on its recent 50th anniversary.
