Two Soviet Jewish families–four adults and five children–arrived today at Kennedy Airport on a flight from Rome. Their migration to the United States, which was assisted by the United Hias Service, ended a 20-year separation between the two families and their relatives here. Mr. and Mrs. Salomon Volcovics and their two sons, Moisy, 13, and Ignatz, 11, are from Vinogradov. Mr. and Mrs. Ignatz Halpert and their two sons and a daughter, Leopold, 21, Desider, 20, and Eta, 23, are from Mukachevo. Both families will be residing in the Greater New York area. Ignatz, Moisy, Eta and Leopold entered the US under the parole authority of the US Attorney General.
