J. D. C. Relief Work for Jews in Morocco Reported “at Full Strength”

The Joint Distribution Committee’s health and welfare services for Jews in Morocco is continuing at full strength, Charles H. Jordan, JDC European director, reported here on his return from a five-day inspection tour in Morocco.

Approximately 50,000 men, women and children benefited from JDC-sponsored and subsidized activities in Morocco during last year, Mr. Jordan reported. “The meeting of physical and spiritual needs, traditional services which we provide Jews throughout the world,” he declared, “are more important now than ever before to the Jewish community of Morocco. It was extremely gratifying to see our basic program in full swing and to have assurance that it would continue undiminished.”
