Mordecai Kaplan and the Jewish Community: A Centennial Glimpse

By Herb Tobin

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

Kaplan's contributions to the field of Jewish communal service remain legion. He created the first synagogue center, was a strong supporter of Federations and organic communities, and an advocate for fusing social work and Judaism together as an academic discipline. He wished to break down what he saw as the artificial division between secular and religious aspects of Jewish life. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.57 no.3, Spring 1981.
