Jews in Poland Embark on Plan to Support Their Communal Institutions; Local Aid Pledged

Jewish cooperatives in Lodz today decided to participate in a program for the financing of Jewish institutions in the city and issued a call to cooperatives in other parts of the country to do likewise.

The move is part of a plan to have Jewish organizations in Poland maintain local Jewish institutions on local funds. The Jewish cooperatives in Lodz will allocate up to 14 percent of their annual profits toward the support of cultural and charitable Institutions in that city.

The Polish cooperative society “Spolem” announced a donation of 100,000 zlotys for the Jewish Art Club of Warsaw. Appeals to Jews and non-Jews to aid in the promotion of Jewish art have been issued by various Jewish cultural groups.
