Fifty Refugee Rabbis, Yesriva Students Reach Palestine from Russia

The first group of fifty refugee rabbis and yeshiva students from Poland and Lithuania to be evacuated from Russia arrived here today.

A meeting of Polish-Jewish leaders here has decided to launch a relief drive for the Jews in the ghettoes of Poland. Each contributor to the relief fund will be “decorated” with a yellow badge which he will display at the entrance of his home. The yellow badges will symbolize the solidarity of Palestine Jews with those in the ghettoes in Nazi-held Poland.
