Jewish Social Service in London Enters New Phase, Board of Guardians Says

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Marked progress toward the stabilization of Jewish social service in London is described in the annual report of the London Jewish Board of Guardians.

The cessation of the immigration of foreign elements has decreased the number of needy cases. There has also been a steady decrease in the number of wives who were deserted by their husbands, due to the fact that it has become increasingly difficult to escape family responsibilities under the restricted emigration provisions. Such cases will become still rarer as the immigrant class of the community will become more deeply rooted in England. Helping the needy to emigrate is a difficult matter in view of the restrictions to immigration to America and other countries and due to the fact that the cost of emigration is prohibitive.
