Jewish Economic Adjustment Problems and Programs: Economic Problems Presented to Relief Agencies

By Joseph E. Beck

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, September 1935

This study is an initial attempt to analyze the economic status of the Jewish clientele of the Jewish Welfare Society of Philadelphia, PA, and to compare these data with data from studies of the general population. Among the findings are these: 1) the Jewish clientele is dominated by white-collar occupations; 2) the Jewish group studied has been unemployed, on an average, for a shorter period of time than other groups; 3) the educational background of the Jewish group is more extensive; 4) the majority of employable women on public relief are domestics, day workers, servants, etc., while the majority among the Jewish women are sales clerks and office workers.
