THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
JTA to Establish European, Mid East
News Bureaus; Arnow Is Re-Elected
NEW YORK (JTA)—The Jewish
Telegraphic Agency will soon es-
tablish a European news bureau
with headquarters in Paris and a
Middle East news bureau with
headquarters in Jerusalem, it was
announced by Robert H. Arnow,
JTA president. Arnow said the ap-
proval for this development was
given by the JTA board of direc-
tors at its meeting April 14. He
noted that this, along with the
launching four months ago of a
daily French News Bulletin, was
part of the continuing expansion of
the world-wide coverage by JTA.
The board also approved a num-
ber of recommendations dealing
with structural and editorial inno-
vations. The recommendations in-
cluded election of board of direc-
tors members for one, two and
three year terms to allow for rota-
tion and mobility; the creation of
standing committees to deal with
finance and development, editorial
services, personnel practices and
overseas liaison. The board of di-
rectors represents the Jewish com-
munities in the United States,
Canada, Great Britain and France.
Re-elected to one-year terms as
officers of the JTA were: Robert
H. Arnow of New York, his fifth
year in office, as president; Ed-
ward Ginsberg of Cleveland, vice
president; Philip Slomovitz of De-
troit, vice president; Abraham
Goodman of New York, treasurer;
Isidor Schifrin of Cincinnati, secre-
tary; Eleazar Lipsky of New York,
board chairman; and Jerold C.
Hoffberger of Baltimore, executive
Michel Topiol, president of the
Appel Juif Unifie de France
(United Jewish Appeal), the cen-
tral French fund-raising body, and
active in the French Jewish com-
munity, told the board that the
French JTA Bulletin has been well
received by the French Jewish
community, especially since it car-
ries news about Jewish affairs and
community services not covered
by the general press. Topiol said
it was expected that the news
carried in the Bulletin would be
used by the general press.
