J.w.b. Director Reports Shortage of Trained Personnel

Delegates to the joint convention of the Jewish Welfare Board’s Middle Atlantic and New Jersey Sections were told yesterday that the “Jewish Community Centers and YM and YWHA’s have a great capacity for awakening in youth a sense of civic responsibility,” by Sanford Solender, director of the JWB’s Jewish Center Division.

Mr. Solender also described what he termed a “drastic shortage” of professionally trained and competent personnel in the fields of community service and said that “recruiting of young people into communal service can be effective only if recruiting is done by local communities.”

Jerome L. Markovitz, of Philadelphia, was elected president of JWB’s Middle Atlantic Section and David W. Levine, of Passaic, was re-elected to the presidency of the New Jersey Section.
