More than 10,000 stateless Egyptian Jews have registered for emigration from Egypt at a special Red Cross section opened in the offices of the rabbinate in Cairo, according to H.A. Goodman, chairman of the European executive of Agudat Israel.

The first boatload of these Egyptian Jews will leave Alexandria soon for Europe, where they will be given assistance by Jewish organizations and by the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Mr. Goodman stated.
