Passover Message, 1971

As we head into the season of Passover, the HIAS archives team would like to share with our readers the following message from Harold Friedman, the president of United HIAS Service in 1971:

Passover 1971

“… our thoughts turn to the tragic plight of our brethren in distant lands who today valiantly struggle to cast off the yoke of persecution and degradation … Our hearts … are with our countless less fortunate brethren to whom this festival will have no significance until they, too, are free.”



Consistently through their history, HIAS has focused on refugees, rescue and immigration. Unfortunately there continue to be people to help all over the world. Fortunately, HIAS is there.
