JTA debuts the Jewish News Archive

Print Email
Crazy dateline.(Alana Newhouse)

The JTA’s Jewish News Archive dropped today, and it is cool! With a few holes, it contains, online, the Jewish wire service’s dispatches since 1917. And already it is doing a good job of not just providing these resources but presenting them in interesting ways. For example: Here, a children’s treasury of past birth certificate-related controversies in the Jewish community.

Also, you have basically have to read this article, from 1981, about “Two Finicky Visitors in Israel”: “Fritz, a 650-pound male dolphin, and Tivie, a female whose weight was not disclosed.” Nor her age, presumably.

Congrats to JTA, and do peruse the archive over lunch.
