Agency (JTA) is the only
news service providing the
American Jewish press
with breaking news of
Jewish interest, the mini-
mal financial support it re-
ceives from local Jewish
federations and welfare
funds across the country has
forced it to rune a shoestring
operation, according to
John Kayston, JTA's execu-
tive vice president.
JTA's budget is now
$925,000, and if it were
boosted to $1.5 million,
Kayston said, it would be
able to provide a news serv-
ice worthy of the Jewish
papers it serves.

budget, we would be able to
start a photo service, which
is sorely needed by the
American Jewish press,"
Kayston explained. "It
would also enable us to pro-
vide better coverage of the
American scene."
To meet its $925,000
budget this year, JTA ex-
pects to receive $388,500
in allocations from
Jewish federations,
$175,000 in subscription
and service fees and
$152,000 in income from
newspapers using its
news and feature service.
In addition, the United
Jewish Appeal of Greater
New York contributes
$100,000 while national
UJA gives $60,000.
"We're not happy with
that amount of money,"
Kayston said. "We run JTA
on a very tight budget. It
has always been the step-
child of the Jewish commu-
nity as far as support is con-
cerned. When I go to Jewish
communities throughout
the country, everyone is
aware of the importance of
JTA, especially now when
daily newspapers have been
running biased news stories
about the Middle East."
JTA was founded in 1917
as the Jewish Corre-
spondence Bureau by a
group of Jewish leaders in
Vienna who were also ar-
dent Zionists. They sought,
Kayston relates, to make
sure that press attention
would be focussed on the
issue of Jewish rights in the
peace treaty following the
World War, a time of viru-
lent anti-Semitism in
Europe.
In 1921 the news service
begari daily cable opera-
tions and moved its base to
London. That same year it
changed its name to the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
under the direction of Jacob
Landau. It moved its opera-
tional headquarters to New
York a year later.
For the past 20 years JTA
has been publishing a
weekly edition of its daily
news service. Although it is
not written specifically for
students, it is used by sev-
eral hundred schools in the
U.S. for current events dis-
cussions, Kayston says.
Until the establishment
of Israel in 1948, Kayston
recalled, JTA was a serv-
ice primarily for non-
Jewish newspapers. The
shift to serving the
Jewish press exclusively
came when news organ-
izations began to send
their own correspon-
dents to Israel. But Kays-
ton says JTA's news and
feature articles are not
found elsewhere because
the wire services and
news correspondents in
Israel do not provide as
full coverage as JTA.
Virtually all of the news
disseminated by JTA is
written by its staff of 20 re-
porters around the globe.
There are three reporters in
Israel — David Landau, Gil
Sedan and HUGH Orgel.
Edwin Eytan in Paris is
chief of the European
bureau. JTA also uses 10
part-time reporters

INSTANT

throughout Europe.
All of JTA's correspon-
dents except David Fried-
man in Washington work
full-time for others. David
Landau, for example, is the
diplomatic corresondent for
the Jerusalem Post: Ac-
cording to Kayston, the rea-
sons JTA's reporters must
hold down other jobs is that
JTA cannot afford to pay
them enough to live on.
