JVS Services for Europe and Palestine
Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) agencies in the United States and Canada have been serving émigrés, since the beginning of migration from Germany in the 1930s, with job placement, vocational counseling, retraining, and related vocational adjustment services. Reports from JVS's to their national agency, the Jewish Occupational Council, indicate deficiencies in the preparation overseas of émigrés for employment in this country. Major criticisms of the effort include that the vocational training received in Europe is generally inadequate and that it is too narrow; it is insufficiently related to the job opportunities available in this country; and does not utilize fully previous skills possessed by the émigrés.
