15,618 Jews Left Europe for Israel, U.S. and Other Points in November, J.D.C. Reports

A total of 15,618 Jews left Europe for Israel, the United States and other countries during November, Moses A. Leavitt, executive vice-chairman of the Joint Distribution Committee, revealed over the week-end. J.D.C. aided the migrants on their journey, paying for almost all passages and providing food, clothing and in-transit medical care, Mr. Leavitt said, adding that the estimated emigration rate for December would be even greater than that reached last month.
