London Federation Buys Flour for Matzoth for Russian Jews

Download PDF for this date

To insure that a sufficient supply of flour will be available for the baking of matzoth by the destitute Jews in Russia, the Federation of Jewish Relief Organizations has decided to purchase at once 100 tons of flour from the Soviet stores.

Owing to lack of funds, the Federation could pay only 20% of the total cost of £3,500 and the balance must be paid before the delivery of the flour can be undertaken. The Federation is to conduct a campaign to raise the necessary sum.
