Leisure Time Activity in the Depression Period

By Samuel J. Rodman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, December 1932

The forced idleness of unemployment caused by the depression of the 1930s had an impact on the psychological wellbeing of individuals, causing them to become discouraged, mentally confused, and bitter. Opening up the community centers to all individuals in need would provide the unemployed with a sense of belonging and assist them in overcoming the sense of inferiority that has overtaken them.
