As a result of the world political crisis and the Korean war more Jews are moving from Manchuria to Israel, Jewish organizations in Hong Kong have been advised.

It is estimated that some 450 Jews will come from Harbin next month. A specially chartered vessel will leave Hong Kong for Tientsin early in the month. The immigrants will be brought back to Hong Kong where they will board planes for Israel.
