“With every turn of the wheel of his tractor, a Jewish farmer contributes to building Socialism. Help him! - Buy a ticket for the OZET lottery.”
Text in Yiddish and Russian. Designed by Mikhail Oskarovich Dlugach. Framed. 23.5 x 17 inches to mat.

Moscow, 1929.

Issued by OZET - Russian acronym for The All-Union Association for the Agricultural Settlement of Jewish Workers in the USSR ("Vsesoiuznoe Obshchestvo po Zemel'nomu Ustroistvu Trudiashchikhsia Evreev v SSSR.") OZET (1925-38) sought to improve the socio-economic status of disenfranchised Russian Jews by resettling them from their traditional shtetls, to agricultural communes established on land provided by the State. The best known OZET-sponsored project was the creation of the Jewish Autonomous Region of Birobidzhan, located in the Russian Far East.
