Yugoslavia’s Jewish Community

Download PDF for this date

For the First time, Yugoslavia’s organized Jewish community played host to a delegation of the European Council of Jewish Community Services, comprising representatives of countries in both Western and Eastern Europe. The occasion was a seminar of the Council’s social service commission which took place April 20-21 of the Yugoslav Federation’s home for the aged in Zagreb.

Taking part in the discussions were representatives from Belgium, Denmark, France, Switzerland and West Germany, as well as East Germany and Hungary. Together with the local group, some 30 professionals and volunteers discussed techniques for “self-actualization” of aged persons and the role of nutrition in their health.

At a reception at the Zagreb Jewish Community Center, Federation president Dr. Lavoslav Kadelburg expressed his satisfaction at seeing the Yugoslav Jewish community play an active role in the solution of problems which preoccupy all European Jewish communities.
