JTA Launches Online Searchable Archive -- Tremendous Resource
By Ruth Ellen Gruber
Bravo and Mazel Tov!
JTA -- the archaically named Jewish Telegraphic Agency -- has announced the launch of a tremendous new online resource -- a digitized archive of all its articles since 1923 -- a quarter of a million articles.
I've written for JTA for many years, and many pieces that I and others have published for the service will be of interest to this blog.
CLICK HERE, for example, for my 1989 article about the restoration and rededication of the great synagogue in Szeged, Hungary.
Or CLICK HERE for my 1999 article on the first European Day of Jewish Culture.
Or CLICK HERE on the a 1976 article about the restoration of the medieval synagogue in Sopron, Hungary
OR CLICK HERE for a 1982 article by Maurice Samuelson about renovations at the Jewish Museum in Budapest
