Jewish Unemployment Bureau Reopened in South Africa: Decision Dictated by Growing Unemployment and D

Download PDF for this date

The South African Jewish Board of Deputies has reopened the Jewish Unemployment Bureau in Johannesburg, which was closed down some time ago because the Board did not have sufficient funds for its maintenance. The growing unemployment and distress among the Jewish population, and the need of an organisation to act as a Jewish employment exchange has compelled the Board, however, to reopen the Bureau and to find the funds for its maintenance by economies in other directions.
