400 Emigrate from Palestine in Week

Download PDF for this date

Emigration of members of all races and creeds from Palestine last week reached an unusually high mark, four hundred persons having left rhough Jaffa during that time. The majority of those leaving gave America as their destination although the Palestinian annual quota will allow only a little more than half a hundred to enter the United States.

The number of Jewish immigrants coming to Palestine during the month of June totaled 950. Of these a large number were chaluzim.
