(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A plan to raise funds for furthering Jewish colonization work in Soviet Russia has been undertaken by the Hilfsverein der Deutschen Juden.

The plan was inaugurated in a proclamation issued by the Society which urges German Jews to subscribe generously toward the fund which will be created in memory of Paul Nathan, the late German Jewish leader who was a devoted worker for the colonization project. The proclamation adds that the. Hilfsverein will recommence its activity in the Near East.
