Both of these UJA leaders have an authoritative knowledge of UJA's current program to help cope with the greatest Jewish re¬ fugee crisis In a decade. To meet the refugee crisis in 1957 the UJA set up an Emer¬ gency Rescue Fund to obtain maximum resources over and a- bove the proceeds from its regu¬ lar nationwide campaign. Rcbcu* Fund proceeds are being used ex¬ clusively to pay transportation. resettlement and initial absorp¬ tion costs tn Israel and other free countries for a minimum of 100,- 000 Jewish men, women and chil¬ dren in flight from tension and persecution in Egypt, Hungary, Eastern Europe and from the un¬ certainties of life in Moslem lands. Proceeds from both the Emer¬ gency Rescue Fund drive and the regular UJA campaign are finan¬ cing the life-saving work of UJA's - constituent agencies — United Israel Appeal, Joint, Dis¬ tribution Committee and New York Association for New Ameri¬ cans. In addition, Rescue Fund allo¬ cations are going to United-Hlas Service, which aids Jewish immi¬ grants in countries other than Israel. Besides aiding the 100,000 refu¬ gees the UJA-supported agencies are providing welfare, rehabilita¬ tion, medical and educational as¬ sistance to more than 500,000 newcomers In Israel and <ll8- tressed and dependent Jews In a score of other countries.
