THE Jews in the collectivized farms in White Russia must work in the fields on Passover, according to the decision of a conference of Jewish farmers.

“Not a single collectivized Jewish farmer must stay away from the fields during Pesach” was the slogan formulated, arch”, was the mation was broadcast to all Jewish farmers in White Russia stating that all foreign campaigns for Passover supplies for Russian Jews were directed by the Jewish bourgeoisie for counter revolutionary purposes.

There is no official anti-Semitism in Soviet Russia. Whatever anti-Semitism still prevails in Russia as a remnant of Tsarist and Black Hundred days is being rigorously suppressed by the Soviet government, for it is properly regarded as a dangerous, reactionary prejudice. But while anti-Semitism is being stamped out in Soviet Russia, Judaism is also being enterminated there. It is true that the Soviet government is strongly opposed to all religions, without discrimination, but the Jewish communist leaders are more energetic than their comrades in their efforts to uproot Judaism.
