Download PDF for this date

Orthodox Jews in Soviet Russia have small prospects of being supplied with Matzoth for the forthcoming Passover festival, according to a statement made public yesterday by the Mizrachi, Orthodox Zionist organization.

The Mizrachi headquarters in New York declare that they are in receipt of a cablegram from the Warsaw Kehillah, signed by Deputy H. Farbstein, president of the council, stating that news received in Warsaw gives great concern to Orthodox Jews.

The cable requested information as to whether, and if so, how arrangements are being made for shipping an American supply of Matzoth to Russia.
