Sub-series consists of files organized by subject matter, containing correspondence, lists, forms, immigrant documents and a small amount of meeting minutes. The records highlight the different kinds of cases JIAS handled: deportations, admission of rabbis, of nurses, of skilled workers, of blind Displaced Persons; and the various activities it undertook, for example, financial assistance, employment assistance, and integration. A number of files classified by country of origin reveal the successive waves and sources of immigrants as time passed, including the United Kingdom, Poland, Shanghai, Eastern Europe, Cuba, Russia and Morocco. "Canadian Immigration" files contain correspondence about individual applicants, and immigration policy.
The sub-series is arranged in its original alphabetical-chronological order.
Records in off-site storage; advance notice required to view.
Partially closed. Researchers must receive permission from the OJA Director prior to accessing some of the records.
This sub-series was created by the archivist from records originally part of series MG2 I1a K2 "Immigration Files - Administration, Projects." In the JIAS office, files were maintained in a central registry system of random numerical classification (these original numbers remain on the files).
