He founded the Shanghai Zionist Association in 1903 and its official newspaper, Israel's Messenger, one of China's oldest and most sophisticated Jewish periodicals… Influenced by Ezra, his nephews started the newspaper Jewish Tribune in Bombay, India. ” (Wikipeida, 2017) These 36 issues of the Tribune include the 1st appearance of many articles and editorials from some of the leading Jewish thinkers from across the world including: NEB Ezra, Bernard S.
