A joint campaign for 2,500,000 zlotys on behalf of the Ort, Toz, and HIAS of Poland was launched here today at a conference called to take measures to keep these three Jewish organizations from closing down. Pointing out that no help could be expected for these organizations from American Jewry because of the economic depression in that country, speakers at the conference decided that Polish Jewry would have to help itself by raising its own funds.

It was stated at the conference that the above-mentioned organizations are in such precarious financial condition that if the campaign fails many Jewish schools, orphanages, medical centres and immigration bureaus will be compelled to close.
