Communist Anti-passover Campaign Fails in Russia

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The anti-Passover campaign conducted by Jewish communists was a complete failure, according to the admission of the Charkoff Communist Yiddish daily, “Der Stern.”

Matzos were sold in great quantities in the Ukraine. Travelling rabbis and Maggidim (preachers) openly propagated against the anti-Passover campaign. The traditional collections to aid poor Jewish families in celebrating the festival, the Moes Chittim, were carried on openly in the White Russian and Ukrainian towns.
