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.

The study will be made by a general committee which will submit its findings to another conference to be held in New York on January 4. The conference elected the following officers: Alfred M. 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. Sternberger, executive secretary of the National Council of Jewish Women, associate secretary.

The following representatives of the six organizations attended the conference: American Jewish Committee: Morris D. Waldman, Harry Schneiderman, Dr. Lee K. Frankel, Jacob Billikopf, Dr. Harry S. Linfield; American Jewish Congress: Bernard S. Deutsch, David L. Podell, Bernard G. Richards, Israel N. Thurman, Congressman Nathan D. Perlman; B’nai Brith: Senator Alfred M. Cohen, Louis Fabricant, Sigmund Livingston, Dr. I. M. Rubinow; Jewish Welfare Board: Harry L. Glucksman, Joseph Rosenzweig, Benjamin J. Buttenweiser, Henry J.
