B’na I B’rith Convention Discusses Defects in Jewish Youth Programs

The survival of American Jewry as “a positive community” is threatened by the defects in its youth programs, B’nai B’rith president Philip M. Klutznick said last night. Keynoting the three-day convention of B’nai B’rith’s District 5, Mr. Klutznick said that the post-war neglect of the burgeoning youth population in America “is reflected in the Jewish community where a lack of understanding of the needs of Jewish education and youth guidance can mean defaulting on the promise of a golden era of Jewish aspirations which the history of our times has opened to us.”
