The Iranian Jews in Chicago: Service Through a Communal Team

By Edith Weiner

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

This article describes the service to Iranian Jews provided by Jewish communal organizations in Chicago. Workers from cooperating agencies held bi-weekly meetings at times of crises, thus allowing them to share information and experiences, solve management problems, coordinate programs and study newly emerging issues. The author describes how there were often daily contacts among members of the team. At times of crisis and extreme anxiety the team often reflected the feelings of the Iranians; this would bring about, in the team, crises that paralleled those of the clients. The team members have also helped each other regulate their own anxiety and thus free each of them to provide sound and realistic services.
