The German campaign for the Ort Reconstruction Fund for the purpose of aiding Jewish farmers and artisans in Eastern Europe, began on October 1st, according to a report which has just reached the American offices of the Ort.

In Roumania an Ort Week is being planned for the benefit of the Jewish farming colonies in Bessarabia and the Trade Schools in Kizhineff, Belzi, Bender, Resina, Yassi and Tchernowitz. David Bergelson, the well-known Jewish writer living in Berlin, and Dr. Aaron Singalovky will soon leave for Roumania to aid in the campaign.
