Mexican Jews Raising Fund to Help Establish German Exiles in Palestine

A campaign for a fund to help settle persecuted German Jews in Palestine was announced here at a mass meeting of the local Jews.

All Jewish institutions have joined the campaign, the object of which will be to collect fifty thousand pesos. In order to assure the success of the campaign all institutions, including the Jewish School and the Relief Association, have postponed their annual campaigns, usually conducted at this time of the year. However, twenty per cent of the total fund will go to these institutions, and ten per cent will be used to combat anti-Semitism in Mexico.

Prominent American Jewish leaders sent telegrams encouraging the campaign, among them Felix M. Warburg, Dr. Cyrus Adler, Morris Rothenberg and Louis Lipsky.

The campaign, which began June 27, will continue through July 31.
