Note on American Immigration Into Palestine:

According to the Jewish Agency, American immigration into Palestine between 1919 and 1945 numbered 8,057 or 2.3 percent of total Jewish Palestinian immigration. Of this number, only sixteen persons arrived between 1940-45; 1,063 arrived in 1933, 1,028 in 1934 and 1,602 in 1935. The number of Americans resident in Palestine with temporary visas and other non-immigrant statuses was estimated at less than 5,000. References on this subject are: S. Bernstein, "The American Jew and Palestine", NP, March 30, 1934, pp. 11-16; Report of the Executive of the Zionist Organization submitted to the Nineteenth Zionist Con
