Social Clubs Seen As Foci for Top Job Discriminations Against Jews

The discriminatory membership practices of some social clubs result in the exclusion of Jews from the highest ranks of industrial employment, because major business and community policies are often established within the walls of such clubs, according to Harry Pincus, Jr., chairman of the Community Relations Committee of the United Jewish Federation of Norfolk and Virginia Beach.

Mr. Pincus cited this point in announcing the results of a lengthy study by the CRC of club discrimination in this area, which is paralleled in many other communities throughout the country. It is the conclusion of the CRC that social clubs which discriminate against Jews should not be the sites for community, professional or charitable functions, Mr. Pincus said.
