The shipment will be transported overseas within the next few days on a special vessel which the federation has chartered to carry relief to Polish Jews. The ship will also carry the first shipment of ten thousand pounds of match which the Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the U.S. and Canada are presenting to the destitute Jews of Poland for the Passover holidays.
