Jewish writers in Great Britain will help to fulfill the appeal of Russian Jewry for funds to purchase 1,000 tanks and 500 planes for the Red Army, it was stated today by Morris Meyer, editor of the London Jewish Times, addressing a meeting of Jewish journalists and writers. The meeting adopted a resolution greeting Russian Jewry. A committee to help organize the appeal for the tanks and planes was set up at the gathering.

Prof. Hyman Levy, noted British mathematician, who addressed the writers, declared that the Jews of the world are facing the greatest crisis in their history. “We must strain every nerve and make every effort to survive as individuals and as a nation. To help Russia means to help win the war and to help the Jewish people among the other peoples.”
