    Vsesoyuznoe Obshestvo po zemelnomu ustroystvu trudyashikhsya evreev (OZET)
    OZET (Society for the Settlement of Working Jews on the Land) was established by a resolution of the Presidium of the Central Executive Committee of the USSR on August 29, 1924 as a complementary public society to KOMZET (Committee for the Settlement of Working Jews on the Land), which was charged with the task of alleviating the difficult situation of the Soviet Jewish population. The main activities of OZET included resettlement of the Jews on collective farms, raising funds within the USSR and abroad, and rendering technical, agronomical, medical, and cultural assistance to the resettled Jews. OZET was organized into a number of departments at the republic, regional, and local levels, and in factories and classrooms. OZET was liquidated in 1938.
