Jewish Tobacco Planters of Bessarabia Hold Conference

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish tobacco planters of Bessarabia have held the first conference for that district in Resina, the Ica headquarters office here is informed. Representatives of the Ica were present in connection with the loans granted by the Ica in the district. Twenty-eight delegates attended from all the villages in the district, and a resolution was adopted expressing the gratitude of all the Jewish tobacco planters to the Ica, which helped them in pre-war days and has in the last three years again been giving them its assistance. Thanks to the credits provided by the Ica, the colonies managed to carry out all necessary cultural activities, and were able to free themselves from money-lenders. The Conference has asked the Ica to continue its support to the Jewish planters of the Resina district.
