JDC Aid for 14,000
GENEVA — The Joint Distribu-
tion Committee has given welfare
and migration assistance to some
14,000 Jews from Eastern Europe,
North Africa and the Middle East
who have sought temporary asylum
in Western Eupore in the two and
one-half years since the Six-Day
War, Samuel L. Haber, JDC exec-
utive vice chairman said on his ar-
rival here at JDC's overseas head-
JDC's total costs for the care of
these transmigrants have already
exceeded $3,000,000 during this pe-
riod, Haber revealed. The JDC re-
ceives funds for aid to transmi-
grants and for health and welfare
services in over 25 countries main-
ly from the campaigns of the
United Jewish Appeal.
The goal of Moshava is to combine a program of physical culture with a cul-
tural, religious, and Zionist program that will give the campers enriching
experience in Jewish living. They learn, by "doing," to appreciate the noble,
moral, ethical and rel igious principles of Judaism.
