Download PDF for this date

One hundred and fifty Jewish farmers in and near Mexico City have formed the Jewish Agricultural Society of Mexico for the purpose of devoting themselves entirely to fostering Jewish agricultural colonization in that country.

A committee was formed to distribute information on agricultural conditions in Mexico to prospective immigrants and to begin a campaign to secure financial aid.
