Three Jews are among the nine members of the new Board of Education of the City of New York sworn in today to replace the old Board which was removed by an act of the New York State Legislature.

The three Jewish members of the new board, who were appointed yesterday by Mayor Robert F. Wagner, are: Anna A. Rosenberg, former Assistant Secretary of Defense and currently a public relations consultant; Max J. Rubin, an attorney active in various educational projects; and Morris Iushewitz, a labor leader. The members of the new Board will serve without salary.
