The Jewish Transient

By Emma S. Schreiber

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

A study was conducted with a number of Jewish agencies participating in the National Registration System in order to understand the problems associated with the transient population in multiple cities. The instability which is manifested in transiency is tied up with the general conditions of our social structure, resulting in vocational maladjustments, periodic unemployment, family disorganization and individual instability. Since the area of the transient covers the United States, the effort of local communities must be coordinated through some national machinery.
