Jewish Council for Russian War Relief Permitted to Conduct Relief Work in Russia

The Jewish Council for Russian War Relief today announced that it has received the approval of the Moscow Government for a project under which the Council will be permitted to carry on non-sectarian relief and rehabilitation work in a designated area in the U.S.S.R. in which there is a heavy concentration of Jews.

The new project will be launched at the annual conference of the Council to be hold in New York in February, the announcement said. The project was originally formulated in discussions with Solomon Michoels and Itsik Fefer, who visited the United States as a Jewish cultural delegation from Russia.
