The "€œMeaningful Jewish Community" Initiative is an attempt to understand the challenges of conventional notions of community and peoplehood in modern American Jewry. As rapidly emerging social trends and conventions challenge this, JCCs of America and other Jewish communal institutions must develop new policies, programs and practices to adapt. This initiative seeks to maintain, enhance and expand Jewish communal infrastructure and provide meaning Jewish communities.
