The graduates completed a 15-month course at the Training Bureau which was founded three years ago by a group of national and local Jewish welfare agencies. The certificates were presented to the graduates by Dr. Kurt Peiser, executive vice-president of the Philadelphia Federation of Jewish Charities, who is chairman of the Board of Governors of the Training Bureau. Speakers at the ceremonies included: Dr. Horace Kallen, Professor of Philosophy at the New School for Social Research, Bernard Pepinsly of Cincinnati, president, and George W. Rabinoff, executive director, of the Training Bureau.
