One of the problems which faced the Anglo-Jewish community during this period, particularly during the mass immigrations, was that of the relief of poverty. This affected both London and the larger provincial communities. The statistical section for each community includes details of local organisations both for the relief of poverty on a casual basis and for the establishment of as many as possible in some sort of permanent employment. Some of these local details give some sort of statistics on how many were so assisted, but in addition the Board of Deputies produced figures collected from various local Boards of Guardians. These were, of course, the Jewish Boards rather than the parochial organisations. The figures produced in the appendices are taken from the statistics presented to the Royal Commission on Alien Immigration of 1903.
