World Jewish Congress to Aid Small Communities Throughout World

The World Jewish Congress in New York will sponsor a Community Service Corps to aid small Jewish communities throughout the world in their search for qualified community personnel, it was announced here today by Samuel Bronfman, vice-president of the organization.

Through the new service, the World Jewish Congress in New York will become a clearing house for information concerning vacancies in small communities, and volunteers willing to serve in remote places. All financial details will be agreed upon between the community and the applicant, with the WJC acting only as liaison.

Mr. Bronfman said that the WJC would invite “rabbinical and educational colleges of American Jewry, as well as of such major communities as Canada and Argentina to cooperate in our program of finding volunteers for Community Service Corps. We would naturally also cooperate with the pertinent Israeli authorities in finding such personnel.” he said.
