The Dawn of a Problem

By Maurice B. Hexter

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1, 1913

The author addresses the issue of recent immigration of Turkish, also called Spanish Jews, particularly in Cincinatti. Their differences from the existing Jewish community, including a different religious rite, a separate language (Ladino), and a lower number of skilled workers, create a challenge for providing social services even while they also create a more acute need. The author provides statistics as well as sociological information about the current Spanish Jewish community in Cincinatti. In Bulletin of the National Conference of Jewish Charities 1913-1914, Baltimore, Vol.IV:5, ed. Lee F. Frankel.
