Download PDF for this date

Plans to find work for more than 10,000 young Jews who observe the Sabbath and thus are handicapped in business will be formulated at the annual convention of the Council of Young Israel Organizations, which opens here tomorrow at the Hotel Clarendon-Brunswick. Delegates from the United States, Canada, Great Britain, France and Poland will attend the conference, which will close next Monday.

A program of vocational training for young Jewish men and women will be mapped out in an effort to help them secure employment. Delegates will outline a plan to interest Jewish youth in the perpetuation of Jewish faith and culture.

Among the personages who are expected to address the convention are: Rabbi M. S. Margolies, dean of the American Rabbinate; Rabbi Bernard S. Revel, dean of Yeshiva College, New York City; Rabbi Wolf Gold, president of the Mizrachi Organization of America; Rabbi David S. Stern, head of the Yeshivah Torah Vodaath; Dr. David I. Macht, of Johns #opkins University; Dr. Nathan Isaacs, of Harvard University; Bernard S. Deutsch, president of the American Jewish Congress; Samuel Levy, borough president of Manhattan; Peter Wiernik, editor of the Jewish Morning Journal; Jacob L. Andron, president of the Federation of Yeshivoth and Talmud Torahs; and Nelson Ruttenberg, president of the Jewish National Fund of America.
