Plans for an intensive study of the various phases of the employment problem as they affect Jews were made at a conference of representatives of six national Jewish organizations held Sunday at the Hotel Astor at the call of the B’nai Brith, according to a statement issued today to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. The conference resulted in the formation of a national conference on Jewish employment with representatives from each of the groups that responded to the call of the first conference.

Cohen, of Cincinnati, president of the B’nai Brith, chairman; Dr. I. M. Rubinow, executive secretary of the B’nai Brith, secretary; and Estelle M.
