Dear Readers,

January 31, 2003

With this second issue of Jewish News from Austria, I would like you to know that we have created a link on our homepage at where you can find an electronic archive of current and previous newsletters by clicking on "Jewish News from Austria." Our other newsletter, a bi-monthly publication entitled Austrian Information which has been issued for many years, can also be found on the same homepage.

All six articles in the current newsletter are arranged in chronological order beginning with the most current news and going as far back as October 2002. Enjoy reading about the most recent Austrian and Austro-American initiatives and contributions to Jewish cultural life.

I wish you a peaceful and healthy 2003.

Yours sincerely,
Christoph Meran
Austrian Press and Information Service
