The training farm sponsored by the Mizrachi Youth of America at Stockton, N. J., to give thirty-five chalutzim and chalutzoth the necessary agricultural training which they need before they leave for colonization in Palestine is now operating in full swing after the inaugural ceremonies which were held on July 4.

More than 300 persons attended the opening of the farm. Coming from all parts of the Eastern seaboard, they heard of the purposes and hopes of the enterprise from Isidore Epstein, national chairman of the Mizrachi Youth of America, Rabbi Seymour Zambrowski, executive director of the Mizrachi Youth of America, and Rabbi Z. Hirsch Manischewitz.
