September 22, 1946
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Sixty-six Jewish refugees from Shanghai, most of them rabbis, rabbinical students and their families, arrived here today from San Francisco, where they landed earlier this week. Those without relatives will be provided with shelter by the United Service for New Americans, which paid their transportation from San Francisco.

The passage of the refugees from Shanghai to San Francisco was financed by the Joint Distribution Committee and the Vaad Hatzala.
