The Transformation of Jewish Social Work: Bernard Reisman and the Hornstein Program at Brandeis University

By Leon A. Jick

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1998

When the Hornstein program was launched in 1969, its prospects for success were precarious. The Jewish community was ambivalent about the centrality of its Jewish identity and unconvinced of the need for Jewishly knowledgeable professionals, and the response of the Brandeis University faculty ranged from tepid to cold. In this unreceptive environment, Bernard Reisman recognized the potential of the program and brought it to fruition. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.75 no.2, Winter 1998.
