Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Jewish immigration societies in Russia around 1913 #ukraine

I need help in determining the names of Jewish organizations that might
have helped my grandfather immigrate >from Lipkany Bessarabia via the
port of Rotterdam to the United States in 1913.
I have found notes that my grandfather was placed on a Jewish train,
which I am guessing means a train for Jewish immigrants. I have
researched the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, but that seems more directed
to helping immigrants once they arrived in America. Also the Joint
Distribution Committee I believe began its response during the
First World War 1914-1918. Can anyone give me the name of an aid to
immigrants organization operating within Russia before the Great War.

Thank you.
