Another Group of Soviet Jews Arrive in New York from Rome

A computer mathematician and his wife, an instructor of Russian language and literature, were among 31 Soviet Jews, many of them gifted professionals, who arrived at Kennedy Airport Thursday evening, it was reported by United Hias Service which assisted all of the newcomers in their emigration. A first group of 61 Jews arrived on Wednesday.

The group was part of the almost 200 Jews from the Soviet Union expected here between Aug. 21 and Aug. 29, it was explained by Gaynor I. Jacobson, executive vice-president of United Hias Service. Attorney General Elliot L. Richardson’s decision of July 30 to invoke his parole authority on behalf of 800 Soviet Jews awaiting U.S. visas in Rome made it possible for them to enter this country.

Also arriving Thursday evening were two doctors, engineers specializing in metallurgy and electronics, a husband and wife who are both architectural engineers, a technical designer, a teacher of English at Moscow University, and a husband and wife, both Ph. D.s who were professors in the Soviet Union.

The newcomers came from Moscow, Odessa and Lvov. They will be resettled in Seattle, Detroit, Baltimore, San Diego, Boston, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Columbus (Ohio) and New York City, with the help of local Federations and Jewish Family and Children’s Services. The New York Association for New Americans will help those immigrants resettling in the Greater New York area.

Netherlands’ Crown Princess Beairix and her husband Prince Claus paid a visit Friday to the Sephardic Cemetery in Ouderkert, southeast of Amsterdam.
