From the Artistic Director Many years ago while I was working at Seattle Rep, a Seattle based actor named Mark Harelik wrote a beautiful play called The Immigrant, which went on to be produced around the country. I have always loved this funny and moving work, and in recent years, given our country’s attitude towards immigrants and the delicate notion of welcome to our home, I felt this play has become suddenly more relevant than ever. Rampant xenophobia has jeopardized the whole notion of inclusion and hospitality.

David Saint Artistic Director

Director Jim Jack, who did such a beautiful job with My Name is Asher Lev at GSP, seemed to me the perfect artist to helm this poignant story. He has assembled a fantastic cast, who, along with a great design team have furnished us with an engrossing and thoroughly engaging evening of theatre. The story is based on the particulars of Mark’s ancestry, but it resonates in a truly universal way for us all. Enjoy.

THE GALVESTON MOVEMENT The Galveston Movement operated between 1907 and 1914 to divert Jews fleeing the pogroms of Russia and eastern Europe away from congested communities of the Atlantic coast to the interior of the United States. The Jewish Immigrants’ Information Bureau directed the movement as a means of preventing an anticipated wave of anti-Semitism on the Eastern seaboard, which might have led to immigration restrictions. Several benevolent groups tried to find a southern port of entry to disperse the burgeoning population. The bureau considered three ports. Galveston, which was closer to job opportunities in the West, seemed the best choice. Besides its location, Galveston was a passenger port for Lloyds Shipping Company, which served the German port of Bremen, through which East European Jews traditionally left the continent. Groundwork for the Galveston Movement was shared by several Jewish organizations in America and Europe: the London-based Jewish Territorial Organization and the Jewish Emigration Society of Kiev with the reception and relocation activities of the Jewish Immigrants’ Information Bureau, based in Galveston. Rabbi Henry Cohen of Temple B’nai Israel in Galveston met almost all of the ships that carried Jewish immigrants and helped direct them to new homes in the interior. Despite the economic depression, 900 immigrants passed through Galveston before the end of 1907. The following year, only 106 came, and Jewish organizations worked hard to stimulate interest in absorbing the immigrants among the smaller communities across the United States. Within Texas, the focus was on Tyler, Texarkana, Marshall, and Palestine, since the railroad fare from Galveston to these towns, at the half-priced charity rate, was only four or five dollars. Recruiters stipulated that immigrants should be able-bodied laborers and skilled workers under the age of forty. The number of Hebrew teachers and kosher butchers was restricted in the belief that strict religious adherence would limit the immigrants’ ability to work and be assimilated. Teachers were deemed unskilled, though some entered, as did others, on the pretense that their skills or training met job needs. In 1909, a total of 773 Jews landed at Galveston, and by the following year 2,500 had sailed to the port, most originating in small towns. In 1911 some 1,400 arrived, only 2-percent of the total Jewish immigration to the United States in that year. By 1913 the situation had worsened. Merchants became concerned about competition from immigrants, and an increasing number of immigrating Polish Jews, who would not work on Saturday, reduced the waning

enthusiasm of American Jewish communities further. Three communities declined to take more; the representative from Cleburne, Texas, complained about the immigrants’ “exactions, fault-finding, and refusal to abide by the labor conditions upon which they come.” Throughout the period of the Galveston Movement, its chances of success were handicapped by continual infighting among the cooperating organizations on both sides of the Atlantic, by the unfavorable condition of the American economy, and by the restrictive attitudes and behavior of Galveston immigration authorities. Further, European Jews did not recognize Texas and the Southwest as the America of their dreams; the area satisfied no religious or nationalistic expectations. Between 1907 and 1914, when it ceased operation, the Jewish Immigrants’ Information Bureau brought 10,000 immigrants through Galveston, approximately one-third the number who migrated to the Holy Land during the same period.
