Service Reports More Jews Are Facing Unemployment

.

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Contrary to popular opin-
ion, unemployment is hit-
ting Jews especially hard,
according to Alfred Miller,
the executive director of the
Federation Employment
and Guidance Service
(FEGS).

From the last-hired,
first-fired Jews in execu-
tive suites, to Russian im-
migrants at entry-level as
well as professional-level
jobs, to many professionals
in the area of human serv-
ices, a disproportionate

Unemployment is a most
serious and potentially de-
vastating problem for
American Jews. '
This is not a judgment
plucked from midair. It is a
poignant quote from a
statement released not long
ago by the board of the Na-
tional Association of Jewish
Vocational Services.
A news round-up expand-
ing on the warning raised
by professionals in the im-
portant field of Jewish voca-
tional guidance and serv-
ices reveals that joblessness
among Jews in this country
is close to the 10.9 percent
figure announced recently
by the federal government
for the nation as a whole.

startling magnitude in-
clude 20.2 percent for

gers.
An urban people, Jews
feel the sting of joblessness
plaguing highly indus-
trialized sectors. Small
shops and other businesses
offering owners the boon of
independence are hard hit
by factory lay-offs. Add to
this the high numbers of
Jews traditionally draWn to
the teaching and social
work fields, and you can
understand why Jewish
vocational offices now have
heavy caseloads.

Prague Haggada
Sold for $55,000

LONDON — A copy of the
Prague Haggada published
in 1527, superbly illus-
trated and printed on vel-
lum, became the most ex-
pensive Hebrew book ever
to be sold at an auction
when bid to almost $55,000
at Sotheby's in New York
recently. It was secured by
Jack Lunzer for the great
Jewish library started in
Italy by his late wife's fam-
ily and now housed in Lon-
don, known as the Val-
madonna Trust.
The Prague Haggada is
the prototype which in-
spired numerous sub-
sequent editions. It is the
first time that a copy
printed on vellum has ap-
peared at auction and only
the third time that the book
has been on the market in
any form in the last 75
years.

According to Herbert
Bienstock, former
regional labor commis-
sioner for the Bureau of
Labor Statistics of the
Department of Labor,
now head of CUNY
Queens College Center
for Urban Affairs and
consultant to FEGS, close
to 100,000 Jews are un-
employed in the New
York City area. Probably
some 250,000 to 300,000
Jews are unemployed na-
tionally, according to his
figures.

Miller pointed out that
some 5,000 Jewish profes-

York area are registered
with FEGS. This number,
which represents only the
people who have come to
FEGS for help, is up approx-
imately 30 percent from a
year ago. The number a
year ago was up 40 percent
from the previous year.
Of the 5,000 profession-
als, about 500 to 750 are
from the communal service
and social service sectors.

U.S. to Oust
Foreign Prof

WASHINGTON (ZINS)
— The Washington corre-
spondent of the South Afri-
can Jewish Herald has re-
ported that the U.S. State
Department is planning to
oust a Communist professor
from Uruguay who is teach-
ing at the University of
Maryland.
The case is embarrasing
the State Department be-
'cause of its criticism of Is-
rael's ouster of foreign pro-
fessors from Arab univer-
sities in Judea and Samaria
for refusing to agree not to
aid the Palestine Liberation
Organization.

Served 10:30 a.m. to
2:30 p.m. every Sunday.
Reservations are suggested.
Cocktails, wines, American
and imported beers available
from noon.
