About the FPA

About the FPAEstablished in June 1957 by thirty one enterprising journalists, the Foreign Press Association in Israel -- known as the FPA -- essentially  attempts to fulfill the same task today as it did at its inception some 50 years ago -- working to assist our members in covering the Middle East conflict by easing the bureaucratic hassles that inevitably come up. 

In 1957, the first FPA members represented the following media: The Times (Roy Elston), The Financial Times (Lore Daniel-Gross), New York Times (Seth King and Moshe Brilliant), Herald Tribune and Time (Monica Elston, stringer to be followed the next year by
Marlin Levin, see "Former Chairmen"), Le Monde (Ben Phillips and Andre Scemama), CBS (Michael Elkins), the BBC (Peter John Flynn), Reuters (Amos Gordon and Arye Wallenstein - see "Former Chairmen"), The Associated Press (Eric Gottgetreau), Agence France Presse (Nathan Gurdus, Benn Felier and Fabien Lacombe), Deutsche Presse Agentur (Rudolf Kuestermeier), International News Service, New York (Jack Lavie), Christian Science Monitor and The Observer (Francis Ofner - see "Former Chairmen"),  Danish Radio (Herbert Pundik), National Broadcasting Co (Alvin Rosenfeld), Jewish Telegraphic Agency (Eliahu Salpeter and Itzak Shargil), France Soir (Erel Ginay), The Associated Newspapers of Ceylon (Felix Grab) and others.

To date the FPA numbers some 480 members representing TV, radio, stills photographers and print from thirty two countries reaching across from Australia to Qatar, Africa to Europe, China to the USA.
