Owing to financial difficulties, the publication was suspended between February 1910 and September 1918, but the paper was revived on October 27, 1918 until its final issue dated October 17, 1941."Israel's Messenger" contained a wealth of articles not only covering world politics, world Zionism and local Zionist activities, but also Jewish religious subjects, Christian attitudes towards the Jews and their religion, the ins and outs of Shanghai Jewish welfare organizations, local business activities, relations with the Jewish communities in Baghdad, India and Palestine, etc. The paper is characterized by its international orientation, open-mindedness and critical and thorough background information. "Israel's Messenger" is an important source of knowledge about the Shanghai Jewish community in the years predating the establishment of the Jewish state and the role Jews of the time played in politics, science and international trade.
