Serious Jewish Unemployment Situation in Galicia Moves Galician Zionist Executive and Lemberg Jewish

The East Galician Zionist Executive and the Jewish Nationalist Deputies from Eastern Galicia have published a Yom Kippur appeal to the Jewish population to establish rescue committees to help the Jewish unemployed throughout Galicia whose position now is becoming desperate.

Jewish unemployment and Jewish poverty is the greater, the appeal points out, because the present crisis has hit both Jewish employers and Jewish workers. It is essential that the victims should be supplied with food, clothing and fuel.

The Lemberg Jewish Community has also started a relief campaign for the Jewish unemployed.

It is the first time, it is pointed out, that a Zionist Executive is devoting itself to a rescue campaign for the needs of the Jewish population on the spot.
