Hias Foresees Mounting
Work While Migration
Grows, Much From Cuba
NEW YORK (JTA) — Jewish
migration in many parts of the
world is increasing with Jewish
men, women and children "flock-
ing" to the offices of the United
Hias Service seeking help that they
hope will come in time, Murray
I. Gurfein, United Hias president,
Addressing t h e 36th annual
meeting of the United Hias Council
of Organizations, Gurfein noted
that, in addition to the increase
in Jewish migration expected into
this country as a result of the
new United States immigration
law, the reopening of the doors of
Cuba will add to the responsibility
of United Hias.
"Most of the 2,500 Jews still
in Cuba," he said, want to come
to the United States. United
Hias has already received in-
quiries from relatives here con-
cerning more than 1,200 of these
James P. Rice, executive direc-
tor of the migration agency, re-
ported that United Hias "will pro-
vide migration and related serv-
ices to some 64,000 people this
year including 12,050 from Europe,
North Africa, the Middle East and
Cuba, who will be assisted to re-
settle in free Western countries."
Awards were presented at the
meeting to Congressman Emanuel
Celler, New York Democrat, for
his role as a "champion of lib-
eralized immigration legislation,"
and to the Workmen's Circle, a
Jewish fraternal order, on the oc-
casion of its 65th anniversary.
