Detailed Description of the Records

  • Subcollection: Administration
  • Extent: 130 files

The subcollection documents the administrative aspects of JDC's relief efforts in Palestine, later Israel; its support for individuals attempting to immigrate or search for relatives after the Holocaust; assistance to yeshivot; its responses to correspondence and appeals for help from Jews in many countries, including Afghanistan, Greece, and Syria; the coordination of shipment of relief supplies from JDC’s Jerusalem office to refugees and survivors in Europe, Cyprus, and Aden.

These records also reflect the impact of security concerns in the fledgling state on JDC’s administrative functions, such as heightened precautions outside JDC offices, correspondence regarding special passes for JDC staff employees to travel within the area of Jerusalem where JDC’s office was located, numerous office moves within Jerusalem, and, finally, the Jerusalem office’s year-long relocation to Tel Aviv.

Decisions of the Cultural and Religious Affairs Committee are cross-referenced in JDC's New York 1945-1954 Administration subcollection.

  • Record Group: General
  • Extent: 48 files

The General record group is the largest in the Administration sub-collection. Half of these are correspondence with JDC offices worldwide, on a wide range of issues: individual cases both in Israel and abroad, export of religious supplies, and public relations. There are also a significant number of country reports on the situations of Jews in Moslem countries, as well as in Europe. Remarkable is a May 1945 letter from Reuben Resnick, reporting on his journey with the allied armies while they liberated Italian towns. He met with Jews who had been hiding in these towns, setting in motion the reconstruction and restitution mechanisms that would prove crucial to these survivors' rehabilitation. Other correspondence of note includes a request for aid sent by 70 rabbis in Afghanistan, a request for aid after an attack in Damascus, August 1949, work done on behalf of 23 Greek Jews imprisoned under Communists, as well as that from David Guzik, JDC representative in Poland, favoring repatriation for Polish Jews in February 1946.
