Download PDF for this date

The Comzet, governmental department for settling Jews on the land, was attacked today by the Congress of Atheists now in session here.

After listening to a report of how Collectivization Day was postponed by Vice-President Smidovitch for the Jewish colonists because it coincided with the Day of Atonement, the Congress adopted the following resolution against the Comzet: “It is imperative to proclaim war, not only on those openly helping our class enemies, but also against those making concessions along the anti-religious front.”
