The growing number of destitute French Jews, mostly former officials and teachers ousted from their posts under the anti-Jewish legislation, is causing concern in French Jewish circles.

To cope with this situation, a special committee has been organized to help needy intellectuals. Dr. Olmer, famous Marseille Jewish physician, is head of the committee, which has launched a fund-raising campaign among French Jews.
