Developing a Liturgy for the Jewish Communal Profession

By Steven F. Windmueller

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 2004

Although many of us became Jewish communal professionals because of our commitment to the Jewish tradition and values, there is no specific liturgy or ritual related to Jewish communal service. This article explores the religious roots of Jewish communal service and presents a prayer that both defines the special role of the professional and acknowledges the contributions of the field to the Jewish people. It is a part of a new initiative devoted to developing rituals and prayers dedicated to the field of Jewish communal service.
