Work of Eighteen Schools and Jewish Colonies Represented (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An exhibition of industrial and agricultural products manufactured and raised in the artisan schools and colonies supported by the Ort, association for the promotion of trades and agriculture among the Jews, was opened today at the Berlin Palace of Arts.

The exhibition will be taken to England and later to the United States. It contains exhibits from the eighteen schools and the Jewish colonies in the Ukraine, White Russia, Roumania and Poland supported by the association.

A large number of invited guests were present at the opening and listened to the explanations of Dr. Singalowsky of the work of the Ort, which strives to bring about a change in the social and economic structure of East European Jewry. Messages of congratulation were received from the Federal Ministry of Labor, the city government of Berlin, the Chamber of Commerce, the Artisans’ Chamber, the Joint Distribution Committee, the B’nai Brith, the Berlin Kehillah, and the Prussian Federation of Jewish Communities.
