The Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) is an international news agency serving Jewish community newspapers and media around the world. The JTA was founded on February 6, 1917, by Jacob Landau as the Jewish Correspondence Bureau in The Hague with the mandate of collecting and disseminating news among and affecting the Jewish communities of the diaspora. In 1919, it moved to London, under its current name.
The JTA is now headquartered in New York City, to which it moved in 1922, and has correspondents in Washington, DC, Jerusalem, Moscow and 30 other cities in North and South America, Israel, Europe, Africa and Australia.
The JTA is a not-for-profit corporation governed by an independent Board of Directors. It claims no allegiance to any specific branch of Judaism or political viewpoint.
