Jewish Emigration from Rumania to Be Resumed; Families to Be Reunited

Download PDF for this date

The reunion of Rumanian Jews with members of their families in Israel, which was interrupted last month, will be resumed soon, it was reported here in Maariv, Israel’s evening newspaper which enjoys the largest circulation. The paper said the news emanates from diplomatic sources.

The report said that, despite the “bad impression” created by some “irresponsible” statements with regard to Jewish emigration from Rumania, the Rumanian Government still intends to abide by the humanitarian principle of reunification of families which she proclaimed. Jews in Rumania who have relatives in Israel will, therefore, continue to benefit from the right to join their families, as do thousands of Hungarians and Germans living in Rumania, the report stated.
