Many New Industrial Projects Started in Palestine

Industrialization in Palestine is progressing rapidly, and new industrial enterprises are being established daily.

One of the recently-introduced industries is manufacture of bristle brushes, started by Polish Jewish experts who are building a large factory. Pig bristles will be imported from the Balkans. It is hoped that the new industry, which is widespread among Jews in Poland and Lithuania, will also provide livelihood for many Jews in Palestine.

Manufacture of wooden toys under the direction of Czech experts has been started in the collective colony Shaar Hanegev. The razor blade factory Okava has considerably expanded its plant production. Several kvutzot (cooperative colonies) have started manufacturing various kinds of marmalade and jams. Special instructors have been appointed to supervise boiling and packing of the jams.
