This paper will attempt to define the function of a vocational agency operating under Jewish communal auspices. In defining the job placement function the vocational agencies have generally agreed that their job is to attempt to place any and all Jewish applicants who apply to the agency. While rendering job placement services to a wide range of Jewish applicants, most vocational agencies have taken pains to define their placement service as an added service available to Jewish people rather than the sole placement service in the community to be used by Jewish job seekers. Finally, while we are in a supplicant posture, we record the hope that our work shall not be bound too much by either family-agency-mindedness and Jewish vocational agencies will be permitted to act out their destined role of serving the total Jewish community.
