Urge Jobs for Sabbath Observers at Young Israel Convention

Sabbath observing positions for all who want to observe the Sabbath was the keynote of the sermon delivered by Rabbi Joseph Lookstein to the more than 500 delegates and visitors to the convention of the Council of Young Israel at Saturday morning service. Rabbi Lookstein explained that the work of obtaining positions for Sabbath-observers as carried on by the employment committee of Young Israel must be continued.

Throughout the proceedings which opened Friday night the young men and women present manifested a real spirit of Judaism. The convention was opened by Hayman Epstein, who introduced Rabbi David S. Stern. A series of 18 resolutions are being drafted by the committee headed by Harry Fromberg, Moses H. Hoenig and S. Bunim.

At the Saturday afternoon session there was a class in Pirke Ovos conducted by Irving Bunim, and a symposium on adult education led by Professor Nathan Isaacs of Harvard. An open discussion on various methods of furthering Jewish education followed.
