Refugees at Seattle

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1915

So many Jewish immigrants have already arrived that the local community appealed to the Hebrew Sheltering and Immigrant Aid Society for assistance, and so many more are expected that the Society is planning to send a special representative to Seattle and is considering the establishment of a regular branch in Seattle.
