Shanghai Jews Appeal for Matzoths After Razing of Bakery

THE JEWISH COMMUNITY HERE, FACING ITS FIRST PASSOVER WITHOUT MATZOTH AS A RESULT OF THE DESTRUCTION BY SHELL-FIRE OF THE YANGZEPOO MATZOH-FACTORY, HAS APPEALED TO AMERICAN JEWRY FOR 25,000 POUNDS OF MATZOH.

(IT WAS INCORRECTLY REPORTED IN YESTERDAY’S JTA NEWS THAT $125,000 HAD BEEN REQUESTED. THE “25,000 POUNDS” MENTIONED IN A DISPATCH WAS THOUGHT TO BE MONEY, BUT LATER INFORMATION MADE IT CLEAR THAT IT WAS MATZOH WHICH WAS ASKED.)
