Federal Programs and Jewish Agencies

By I. M. Rubinow

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, September 1935

Examining the question of whether Jewish social work and social service organizations will, or ought to be, replaced completely by public (government) assistance and/or private nonsectarian organizations, the author explores in depth the aspects of social services which transcend the individual, intersecting with concepts of communal identity, as well as special problems facing the Jewish community. Even if public and private nonsectarian social services become more widely available, he explains, Jewish communal service will remain relevant and necessary. Many individual services, however, are likely to be transferred to government, he opines.
