(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Registration of Jewish artisans who are to receive tools and machines paid for by their American relatives was started by the Ort, the society for the promotion of trades and agriculture among Jews. Registration was opened in Moscow, Kiev, and Minsk. During the first four days 700 registered in Moscow alone. The registration will be extended to Odessa and Charkov in the near future.

An investigation of the suitability of the type of machine applied for to the individual’s work will be conducted by the Ort, before the tools are given out.
