An exhibition of photographs and diagrams portraying Jewish achievements in Palestine will leave for Russia on Sunday accompanied by a delegation of the Victory League for Russia, it was announced here today. The exhibition covers all branches of the economic life of the Palestine Jewish community.

The delegation will also take along three ambulances for the Red Army which have been contributed by the Victory League, which was established to collect funds for relief for Russia among the Jews in Palestine. The exhibit will first go to Teheran from where it will proceed, after a ten-day stay, to Moscow.

The League also announced today that it is in receipt of a check for $50,000 received from the South African Jewish Committee to Aid Russia. The funds will be used to purchase ambulances and medical instruments in Palestine for shipment to the Soviet Union. Meanwhile, the Palestine Jewish Physicians Association has begun collecting medical instruments in response to an appeal from the medical division of the Red Army.
