Journalists representing Jewish media outlets from across the former Soviet Union gathered Monday for a conference in Moscow. During three days of discussions and workshops this week, some 30 participants in the 2nd Annual Conference of Jewish Journalists in the C.I.S. will focus on the role of Jewish press in building community, raising Jewish consciousness and responding to anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli bias in the general media. The event was organized by the New York-based Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture.
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.
