400 Jews Sail from Shanghai for Israel; Come from Three Cities in Communist China

A group of 400 Jews from Shanghai, Tientsin and Harbin–all in Communist China–sailed from here today for Israel aboard the S.S. “Worcester Victory.”

(A report from Singapore today declared that many of the city’s 1,200 Jews believe that the time has come for them to migrate to the Jewish state. Since last April 65 Jews have already departed for Israel, the dispatch added.)
