“geverkshaften Campaign” Nets $82,000 for Palestine

The National Labor Committee for the Organized Jewish Workers in Palestine has as a result of this year’s “Geverkshaften Campaign” sent to the Jewish workers in Palestine the sum of $82,000. This is about $10,000 more than was sent by the committee to Palestine a year ago. The money was sent to the “Histadruth”, the general federation of Jewish workers in Eretz Yisreal, which was thereby enabled to strengthen its industrial and agricultural cooperatives, its schools and cultural institutions, its Workers’ Sick Benefit Fund, Workers’ Homes and many other institutions. Especial help was rendered to the loan kassas, which enabled workers to undertake various contracts and the employment bureaus, which found work for several thousand halutzim, according to a report from the committee.
