The Jewish Agency for Israel has established a fund for needy young immigrants. The emergency fund for immigrant students who are alone in Israel will be launched Monday at the Jewish Agency assembly in Jerusalem. The fund, a partnership with Israel’s Absorption Ministry, comes in response to government cuts in financial aid for new students, according to Jewish Agency spokesman Michael Jankelowitz.
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.
