A total of 1,250 Jews entered Palestine this week, including 125 Jews from Yemen and 89 from North Africa who landed today. The total includes 753 Rumanian Jews who reached Palestine this week from the Rumanian port of Constanza by way of Turkey.

(Twelve-hundred and eight Jewish refugees from Rumania, who recently arrived in Palestine on five steamers, are rapidly being absorbed in the economic and social structure of the country with the aid of funds contributed by American Jews, it was reported today in a cable received by the United Palestine Appeal from Eliezer Kaplan, treasurer of the Jewish Agency for Palestine in Jerusalem.)
