Agudas Israel Will Be Guided by Wishes of Sending in Sending Parcels to Poland

The problem of whether the Agudes Israel organization in the United States should continue to act as agent for sending food parcels to Jews in Nasi-occupied Poland will, in the future, he guided entirely by the wishes of the British authorities in Washington, it was announced here today by the Agudah World Executive.

In making its announcement, the Agudah Executive expressed regret over the fact that the Joint Boycott Council of New York which insisted that the Agudas Israel discontinue sending food packages to Jews in Nasi-held territories, “has made a national issue of a problem which was on the verge of amicable settlement.”

The Executive of the Agudah claims that it has been proven that the food parcels have reached the individuals for whom they were intended and have thus helped to alleviate distress of starving Jews in Poland.
