A revival of interest in refugees within the Manchester B'nai Brith Women's Lodge, following the collapse of its Hospitality Committee in 1935, was apparently sparked off by the same chain of international events and those same pressures from Woburn House which had brought the MJRC into being. Later, the MJRC, found a viable plan, agreeable to the lodge, the committee, Woburn House and the Home Office, for the financing and management of a children's hostel with accommodation for a maximum of twenty-two children between the ages of thirteen and sixteen.
