The Jewish Employment and Vocational Service of the Federation of Jewish Agencies of Greater Philadelphia has received a $41,350 grant from the United States Office of Rehabilitation, it was announced here by Leon C. Sunstein, Jr., president. He said the grant is for continuation and expansion of the agency’s short-term work therapy program. The grant included renewal of a 1959 grant of $39,115 plus an increase of $2,235 for 1960.

Mr. Sunstein explained the grant was made after a review of the program indicated it had served more people with emotional disturbances than was originally contemplated. Interest in the project has been indicated in visits by more than 75 agencies, colleges, educational institutions, hospitals and health and welfare agencies in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland.
