Detailed Description of the Records

  • Subcollection: Subject Matter
    Extent: 253 files

This subcollection describes JDC’s Jerusalem office’s post-World War II programs and relief activities. These records include: discussions on the challenges of sending supplies from Israel during the War of Independence to refugees and survivors in Europe; lists of early recipients—as early in 1945—of JDC relief packages in Vilna, Rovno and Kiev; monthly financial reports detailing outlays for emigration assistance, supplies, and assistance to yeshivot students and their families throughout Israel; preliminary deliberations about planning an airlift of Iraqi Jewry—which eventually took place as Operation Ezra and Nehemiah, a series of airlifts from Baghdad in 1951-1952; and the impact of the rise of Communist governments in China and Europe on JDC’s activities, reflected in, for example, the increasingly heavy taxes levied by the Romanian government on relief packages. (In 1947, JDC ceased its activities in Romania.)

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

  • Record Group: Aliya
  • Extent: 57 files

The Aliya record group, the second largest in this subcollection, primarily covers the years 1948-1952, a period of mass immigration to the State of Israel. JDC coordinated and subsidized the transport of Jews from Aden, Afghanistan, China, Europe, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, and elsewhere (see the Aden sub-collection for detailed information on Occupation Magic Carpet from Yemen).

The files contain passenger lists and transit camp descriptions from Operation Ezra and Nehemiah, a series of airlifts from Baghdad in 1951-1952, during which most of the 2,800-year-old Iraqi Jewish community--some 130,000 people--are brought to Israel via Cyprus and Iran; discussions about reducing support for Aliya in light of curtailed funds; Aliya statistics; and an agreement, dated 1951, that the Jewish Agency assume responsibility for Aliya, as well as its plans for building and loans to facilitate absorption.

Another noteworthy group of records are the 11 files of emigration deposits and promissory notes submitted by individuals in Israel to cover the cost of their relatives in Europe hoping to make Aliya from Europe.

The Cultural/Religious record group describes the proceedings of JDC's Cultural and Religious Affairs Committee of JDC, which was based in JDC's global headquarters in New York and supervised allocations for cultural and religious supplies and resources to Palestine, later Israel, along with some shipments of supplies to communities in Europe and Shanghai. The files also reflect a policy shift in 1949 towards exclusively funding institutions of higher education--with an increased focus on supporting yeshivot all across Israel.

In addition, this record group includes material on Torah scrolls and research and advocacy conducted on behalf of Agunot (women who have not received a religious divorce from their husbands). For post-1949 files on these topics, please see the Yeshivot record group in this Subject Matter subcollection.

The 19 Education files primarily cover the years 1948-1952, while there is some material from 1945-47. The material details educational programs in North Africa and Europe, including four files on the recruitment of individuals in Palestine/Israel to teach in Europe and North Africa. The Jewish Agency conducted much of the recruitment, but the Yeshivot Committee also responded to requests by the Central Orthodox Committee for teachers from that sector. In addition, the record group includes nine files on the Paul Baerwald School for training Jewish social workers in Versailles, recruitment of applicants and its planned move to Israel. Finally, the record group includes an agreement with ORT, as well as correspondence on scholarships and training by the National Council of Jewish Women.

  • Record Group: Supplies
  • Extent: 31 files

The 31 files in the Supplies record group cover the years 1944-1951, starting with supplies sent into Soviet Occupied Poland in December 1944. DPs in Europe received religious, medical, and educational supplies originating in Palestine/Israel and elsewhere. While JDC's original policy dictated sending as much as possible from Palestine/Israel, during the War of Independence this became less practical. Jewish communities in South Africa and Australia, eager to help, sent various goods for distribution to DPs; in addition, the surplus supply found in Europe was channeled to help those in need. The record group also includes material on products imported to Palestine/Israel, such as meat for the yeshivot feeding program, and various goods for organizations such as Hadassah and the military.

  • Record Group: Yeshivot
  • Extent: 25 files

The 25 files in the Yeshivot record group cover the years 1945-1952. While the activities aiding the yeshivot and refugee rabbis in Palestine/Israel originally fell under the supervision of the Cultural-Religious Affairs Committee in New York, this committee recognized the need for greater local supervision. In November 1949 Rabbi Jacob Goldman became the JDC liaison to yeshivot and soon founded the Jerusalem-based Yeshivot Committee. This committee brought together the three major yeshivot bodies, Mifal HaTorah, Va'ad HaYeshivot, and Ichud HaYeshivot, to form universal policies regarding JDC allocations to the yeshivot, their building funds, research projects, and feeding programs. The material reflects the controversy over the legitimacy of secular subjects and job training as part of the yeshiva program, and includes an argument to subsidize Beis Yaacov girls schools to increase the secular knowledge in ultra-Orthodox households. In addition, the record group includes attempts to provide religious books to yeshivot obtained through the Offenbach Archival Depot in Europe, and to encourage yeshiva students to become rabbis in new settlements. For related material, see the Cultural/Religious record group.
