The Importance of Supervision in Professional Practice in Federations

By Louis Levitt

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1981

The author suggests that the unease of Federation executives may be produced by the vulnerability of the Federation professional to lay decision-making as well as the inability to deal with the resultant practice problems openly due to organizational rhetoric; this masks the problem and the essential differances between staff and lay volunteers. Indeed, the Federation field seems to accept without question the job title of executive vice-president which blurs the difference between facilitative staff and decision-making board and makes them one and the same. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.57 no.3, Spring 1981.
