By Ben M. Selekman

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

The problem of the economic adjustment of Jews is inextricably bound up with the problem of economic adjustment in the entire American community, but an approach must be made to the peculiar problems of economic maladjustment prevailing among Jews รข?" their overconcentration in white collar jobs, in the professions, in small business and in cities. A large-scale experiment in one or more communities in the field of vocational guidance and occupational redirection should be undertaken.
