Download PDF for this date

One hundred Jewish delegates are participating in the second international congress on social work which opened here yesterday.

The Jewish delegation held an informal meeting under the chairmanship of Maurice Karpf of New York, Director of the Graduate School for Jewish Social Service. The meeting was for the purpose of establishing closer contact between Jewish social workers throughout the world.

Although the formation of a central organization has not been decided upon, speakers at the session expressed the opinion that personal contact and the exchange of information will be of service.

Dr. Bernhard Kahn, European director of the work of the Joint Distribution Committee, spoke on the economic and social position of the Jews in Eastern countries.

The Jewish Society for the protection of Jewish women against white slave traffic submitted a report and recommended the establishment of a hotel for Jewish girls in Eastern Europe.
