A plan to develop the silk industry among the Jews in the small town was presented by the Charkoff Yiddish daily, “Stern.”
The climate in the Ukraine is favorabile for the growing of the mulberry bushes on the leaves of which the silkworm feeds. Hundreds of declassed Jews could be helped through this project, the paper declares.
Practical results from the plan presented by the “Stern” would not be possible within ten years, since this time is required for the growth of the trees, it was declared.
