Argentine Jewish Settlers Send for Their Families

Download PDF for this date

Progress in the new Jewish settlements in Argentine is seen by the fact that many of the settlers are sending for their families. From July 1st, 1928 to June 30th, 1929. 3,375 of the new settlers sent 168,590 pesos ($76,000) to their wives and children in Europe. In addition they are buying steamship tickets on the instalment plan to bring their families to the new country, states a report received by the Hias, Hebrew Sheltering and Immigrant Aid Society, from its offices in Buenos Aires.

During the period covered by the report 7,000 Jewish immigrants arrived. This was a considerable increase over the number in the same period for previous years and was attributed to the extension of the organization established in Argentine by Hias, Ica and Emigdirect working to-together to assist the Jewish migrants.
