Jewish Communal Structures Around the World

By Daniel J. Elazar

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1997

In the postmodern era, all Diaspora Jewish communities are voluntary, and the first task of every Jewish community is to learn to deal with the particular local manifestation of its Jewish population's freedom to choose. Participation in the community actually defines its limits, and each is organized as a series of concentric circles around a central core of Judaism/Jewishness that draws Jews toward it in varying degrees. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.74 no.2, Winter 1997.
