Download PDF for this date

Fifty Chaluzim, Palestine pioneers, left Moscow today for Odessa where they will sail on September 27th for Palestine. The group is the largest ever to have left Russia for Palestine. The majority of them are from pioneer colonies in the Crimea.

The Soviet government placed no obstacles in the way of their leaving, granting them visas to proceed.
