The traditional Jewish mother, whose devotion to her family has been depicted as all-embracing, may soon become an endangered species, a specialist in Jewish identity and family concerns declared. Dr. Gladys Rosen, a program specialist in the American Jewish Committee’s Jewish Communal Affairs Department, warned that the continuity of Jewish family life could be imperiled unless special encouragement, prestige and support were given to the role of motherhood in the Jewish community. She made her remarks at a special session of the annual meeting of the AJCommittee’s National Executive Council which met here last weekend.
