The Recent Rise of Professional Orthodox Jewish Social Services

By Marvin Wikler

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1979

The author discusses the increasing number of professional social services which are staffed by and serve primarily Orthodox Jews. He examines possible causal factors, including increased ethnic identification, professional emancipation, increase in professional sophistication in the Orthodox community, and increase in the Orthodox Jewish population. The author argues that the wider field of Jewish communal service will need to address themselves to the unique requests, needs, and demands of Orthodox Jews, and that failure to do so could result in the Orthodox community developing all of their own, totally independent professional agencies, at a cost to Orthodox and non-Orthodox Jews alike. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.55 no.3, Spring 1979.
