Download PDF for this date

At a meeting here, the Jewish Colonization Association decided to resume its vocational training programs for Jewish young men and women and to grant loans to needy Jewish workers. Delegates attending the meeting include those from Belgium, France and Britain.

A report submitted by the Association’s director-general, Victor Girmounsky, noted that of the 3,500 Jews settled on J.C.A. in Argentina, 3,000 had already become owners of their own holdings. He added that the Canadian settlers were also doing well.
