Anti-passover Campaign in Moscow Doomed to Failure

Download PDF for this date

The anti-Passover campaign in Moscow this year will be a weak affair because the Jewish Communists have no issue and will have to limit their Moscow program to merely a few anti-religious concerts during Passover eve, which actually amounts to nothing.

On the other hand, the number of Jews registering for matzoth baked from leavened flour (a special emergency ruling permits this) at the Moscow synagogues is growing daily. Matzoth bakeries are now being opened in different sections of the city with official sanction.
