Volunteer Involvement in Soviet Jewish Resettlement: Issues and Challenges

By Joel M. Carp

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1982

This article looks at the role of the volunteer in the Soviet Jewish resettlement and acculturation process during a time of unusually great social and economic upheaval. While Israel's reception and placement grant for Soviet Jews and the Soviet Jewish resettlement program in the United States have the support of the Administration, the author holds that the Jewish community will soon need to defend these programs before the Congress, which is in the process of reducing federal expenditures. The author outlines the ongoing responsibility of the Jewish community to care for the acculturation needs of the Soviet immigrants. In order to work productively in this matter, a new wave of volunteer energy with a different focus is required. The author outlines the crucial factors that will likely enhance the process of Jewish integration, which are the responsibility of the voluntary sector. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, 58:3.
