Work History

Vocation agency
opens archives.



he Jacob Rader Marcus
Center of the American
Jewish Archives on the
Cincinnati campus of Hebrew
Union College-Jewish Institute of
Religion has opened records of the
International Association of Jewish
Vocational Services (1AJVS).
Donated by Genie Cohen, execu-
tive director of JAWS, the JAWS
records are now available in the
Barrows-Loebelson Family Reading
Room at the Jacob Rader Marcus
Center in Cincinnati.
A finding aid is available in the
Reading Room and online at www.
Founded in 1939 as the Jewish
Occupational Council (JOC), the
JAWS was created when the Council
of Jewish Federations and Welfare
Funds called upon the Jewish com-
munity to respond to high levels of
Jewish unemployment during the
Great Depression.
Following World War II, the JOC
expanded its work to help Jewish
soldiers re-enter the workforce after
the war. In later years, the organiza-
tion began to assist Jews who were
being persecuted in other countries
while also conducting educational
programs, rehabilitation services,
and home and community based
services for emigres and handi-
capped persons, among others.
Today, the LAWS (renamed in
1976) links 28 health and human
service agencies in the United States,
Canada and Israel.
The IAJVS records document the
organization's administrative activi-
ties, annual conferences and special
projects, from its beginnings to
the current day. The JAWS records
include constitutions and bylaws,
minutes from the board of governors
and executive committee, miscella-
neous reports, conference programs,
project files and photographs.
Minutes document administrative
actions and oversight functions of
the JAWS. Project files include notes,
correspondence, internship reports,
as well as files on IAJVS's work with
emigres and an aging workforce. ❑
