Jewish Institutions in Russia Liquidate Owing to Lack of Funds

Many Jewish children’s homes and cultural institutions are being liquidated throughout Soviet Russia owing to a lack of funds, according to a statement made by Mr. Simon Kodavsky, the Director of the Joint Distribution Committee’s activities in Russia.

This critical situation has arisen since the Joint Distribution Committee ceased its support.
