Occupational Adjustment Problems Among Jews

By Irwin Rosen

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

The author presents results of a study based on applicants at the central employment bureau of the New York Jewish Federation, a population which the author notes may not be representative of the unemployed Jewish population as a whole. The study finds that these applicants are typically young, in fairly good economic circumstances, well educated and chiefly trained for white-collar and professional occupations and away from the manual occupations pursued to a large extent by their fathers. These applicants have been identified mainly with the so-called typical Jewish industries: clothing, furs, foods, amusements, banking and brokerage, and retail trade.
