To Establish No More Separate Jewish Colonies in the Ukraine

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Jews desiring to be settled on the land in the Ukraine hereafter will not be colonized in separate Jewish colonies but among the peasants, according to a decision of the Government Commission for Coloniazation.

The decision was reached, it was declared, because of the lack of free land for separate settlements.

The White Russian Government Bank assigned a subsidy of 117,000 roubles for the newly established Jewsih collective farms in the Minsk and Mosir districts.

The situation of Jewish artisans in many small towns is very grave, because of the lack of raw material, declares the “Emes,” Moscow Yiddish daily.
