CJFWF Study Shows
Changed Growth
Patterns in U.S.

Recent population studies
made by Jewish federations as
aids in community planning re-
veal some significant differences
in composition and growth pat-
terns between the Jewish and
non-Jewish portions of the
population, according to the
"Report on Jewish Population
Studies" issued by the Council
of Jewish Federations and Wel-
fare Funds.
The demographic studies by
eight federations within the
past five years show that Jews
in the United States diverge
statistically from the rest of the
white urban population in age
distribution, size of family,
birth rate, proportion of foreign
born, level of education and
occupational classification.
One significant divergence
was found to be in age distri-
bution. The data reveals a sub-
stantially greater proportion of
Jews in the 40 to 64-year-old
groups, forecasting an increase
in Jewish aged in the coming
decades that will exceed the
rise in the general population.
However, a drop in the num-
ber of Jewish births was re-
vealed, contrasting with a rise
among the general white urban
The high level of education
attained by U.S. Jews ,is shown
in the fact that more than a
third of those queried in the
reporting studies had reached
or gone beyond the college
level—the largest ratio in the
30 to 44-year-old group, a n d
the proportion diminishing in
the older age groupings.
A comparison with the total
white urban population indi-
cates that proportionately twice
as many Jews in these com-
munities have attended college.
An occupational cross-section
drawn from the reported data
shows the largest proportion of
American Jews to be managers,
entrepreneurs, a n d self-em-
ployed; a slightly smaller per-
centage to be professionals and
semi-professionals; still fewer,
engaged in clerical, sales,
skilled and semi-skilled - 7ork;
and virtually none in unskilled,
or personal and protective serv-
In contrast, the general U.S.
census data shows the largest
proportions in the skilled, semi-
skilled, clerical and sales
fields; and the smallest pro-
portion in managerial or self-

The gift division started

it was necessary to take over

Israel Will Train
Directors for Jewish
Centers in Europe

GENEVA, (JTA) — Twelve
young men and women from
five European countries have
been chosen from 240 appli-
cants for enrollment in a train-
ing institute for directors for
Jewish centers, Charles H. Jor-
dan, overseas director-general
of the Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, reported.
He said the Institute, which
will begin July 1 in the Paul
Baerwald School at the Hebrew
University • in Jerusalem, was a
cooperative venture of organi-
zations working for Jewish
youth. He listed them as the
JDC; the Standing Conference
of European Jewish Community
Services; the Jewish Agency
for Israel; and the Paul Baer-
wald School. Jordan said the
Jewish Agency will finance an
intensive four-month seminar
on the Hebrew language and
Jewish cultural studies for the
enrollees. The JDC will pay for
transportation to Israel and
maintenance and tuition. The
JDC was bringing Yehuda Ro-
senman, executive director of
the Jewish Community Center
of Baltimore, to Israel to direct
the project.
Jordan said that whereas 10
years ago there was not a
single Jewish center in all of
continental Europe, there were
now 82- such centers in opera-
tion created with West German
reparations funds made avail-
able by the Conference on Jew-
ish Material Claims Against
Germany. He explained that
"this phenomenal growth" • cre-
ated a need for trained per-
sonnel who were not available
in Europe.
The 12 enrollees were recom-
mended by specific communi-
ties and have agreed to work
for the community that recom-
mended them when they com-
plete their training in Israel.
They will eventually serve in
Frances, Greece, Sweden, Bel-
gium and West Germany.
