Several Jewish agricultural settlements in Russia have donated part of their crop toward the Palestine Workmen’s Fund in order to assist in relieving the economic depression which burdens Jewish laborers in Palestine, according to information received from Russia.

Committees for the purpose of collecting for the Palestine Workmen’s Fund have been established in Moscow, Leningrad and many other cities in Russia.
