Young Israel Organization Favors 5-day Work Week

The Council of Young Israel Organization, holding its annual convention here at the Hotel Clarendon-Brunswick, today decided to go on record as in favor of the five-day week with employees permitted to take off both Saturday and Sunday. This decision was reached as the convention considered means of aiding the thousands of Jewish Sabbath-observers who refuse to work on Saturday and consequently find their field for employment considerably limited.

More than six hundred delegates from branches of the organization throughout the world were on hand when the convention opened today.
