Orphanage in Newark, NJ 1943 #usa #france

My father aged 9 and his older brother aged 14 were 
sent from Lisbon on the SS Serpa Pinta to Philadelphia in Jan.1943 after escaping from Toulouse, France with their parents by crossing over the Pyrenees. They ended up in an orphanage in Newark, I assume Jewish, for 6 months until their parents could get a visa and get them out. I have been unable to find any records of this orphanage. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you,
