Ort Trade Schools Depend on United States Aid

Download PDF for this date

A campaign to secure funds has been inaugurated here for the trade schools maintained by the Ort which are at the present time faced with a catastrophic financial crisis.

Dr. Lvovitch, leader of the World Ort, has come to Poland to lend his services to the campaign. The campaign is being supported by press and public opinion.

The drive is not, however, meeting with considerable financial success inasmuch as Polish Jewry is unable to contribute much monetary aid.

Polish Jewry does not believe that it can from its own resources succor the trade schools. Considerable hope is placed on the campaign which the People’s Ort Federation is conducting in the United States, with the cooperation of Dr. Aaron Singalovsky.
