Jewish Vocational Service Conference Discusses Use of Public Funds

Download PDF for this date

The use of public funds by Jewish Vocational Service agencies in developing and demonstrating new methods in job rehabilitation was one of the key topics at the three-day annual conference sponsored by the Jewish Occupation Council. Benjamin S. Loewenstein, vice-president of the Council, a national coordinating agency for Jewish Vocational Service agencies, led the discussion.

The delegates from 24 Jewish Vocational Services throughout the United States and Canada also were told by Dr. Martin Hamburger, professor of education at New York University, that efforts to guide youth and rehabilitate the unskilled and the handicapped would have to be supplemented with legislation to provide job opportunities, workshops and retraining on a large scale. Leonard H. Cohn was elected chairman of the Council and Samuel S. Greenberg president.
