Sunday November 30th was the first day the World Sephardi News Service rolled out its first edition of the WSNS Sephardic News Radio. WSNS, an operation of the International Society for Sephardic Progress (ISFSP) plans to initially offer Sephardic News Radio on a weekly basis, then increase, eventually offering a daily program.

WSNS has been one of our"most successful operations," mentioned Peyton Bass, WSNS Director of Operations and consultant to the ISFSP.

The current WSNS news broadcast is available in both Real Player as well as MP3 format. The latter can be downloaded and listened to offline, or placed on a CD and listed to in the car or elsewhere.

Shelomo Alfassa, Executive Director of the ISFSP said he was "incredibly proud" of his staff who helped pull this together, for the sake of the Sephardic community. "I hope the audio broadcasts will not only be informative, but will allow those who are visually impaired to also enjoy hearing the news." Alfassa went on to say that he hoped places like the Sephardic Home, a Jewish nursing facility in New York, would play the broadcasts for its residents who might not read, but are interested in staying up to date with current affairs.

The broadcasts will soon be available weekly on www.SephardiNews.com
