Current Problems of Jewish Migration

By Maurice Eigen

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1948

This piece explores the current issues facing Jewish migration. The author states that one of the biggest tragedies of Jewish migration today is that the family reunion character has been greatly disrupted. This great failing would not be as serious if governments attempted to ease the migration process. However, three years after liberation, there has seemingly been a stepping-up of restrictions, not in only in countries of immigration but also in European countries. The piece concludes by affirming the need for agencies to understand these urgent needs in hopes that a satisfactory solution can be applied to this immediate problem.
