Urges 10-year Jobs Program; Predicts Decline in U.S. Jewry

communities are largely unaffected by the present depression, but other small Jewish communities, ranging from 1,000 to 5,000 Jews, need occupational redirection.

Joseph E. Beck, of the Jewish Family Welfare Society of Philadelphia, reporting on the economic adjustment problems among Jews, outlined the experience provided by 1,000 clients of a Jewish and a public relief agency.

Others who participated in yesterday’s discussion on the economic readjustment of American Jewry, were Irwin Rosen of the Federation Employment Service of New York and Robert C. Hoppock of the National Occupational Conference of New York.
