The launching of a drive to raise $1,000,000 for an educational campaign to strengthen and expand Yiddish culture was announced here today by the Organizing Committee for a World Congress on Yiddish culture.

Cooperating in the committee are the Jewish Labor Committee, Workmens Circle, Jewish National Workers Alliance, Jewish Writers Union, Jewish Pen Club and other groups. The funds collected will be devoted to publishing Jewish books and sending teachers to Jewish camps and communities of Europe which are being rebuilt.
