Another, helped find at a Miami hotel. COngregation spokes- reported that they up to 12 more not yet arrived. Congregational members have contributed money, food and volunteers to help resettle the Cuban refugees. Madeline Arenson, super- visor of the Refugees Resettle- ment Agency under the auspices of the Miami Federation, said the area's Cuban Jewish community has been "anxious to help." She said most feel strongly about the situation, "not only as Jews, but because most are Cuban exiles themselves. They have a double commitment," The resettlement program, a permanent agency which has helped to resettle refugees from Russia, Southeast Asia, Chile, Iran, and now Cuban, Jewish and non-Jewish alike, knows of two Cuban Jewish refugees staying with relatives, one the young cousin of a Miami family, and a girl now staying with an uncle. They know of another man on the way. But, Arenson said, 98 percent of the Cuban refugees the agency helps to resettle are not Jewish. The agency "attempts to bridge the gap" for the refugees. While relatives can provide a temporary roof. some cannot afford to feed the refugee relatives, or pay for medical care. The Cuban refugees are eligible for food stamps immediately, while the Mt. Sinai Hospital in Miami takes emergency medical cases. Most come to the resettlement agency asking for employment. The spokesman for the Cuban Hebrew Congregation said, even though there are not many Jews in Cuba. there are some. "We don't know who wants to come to the U.S. Maybe many are afraid to leave Cuba." hew 00eret Executive Appointed director of Kinneret has been begin the administrative job in mid- David Z.
