Mobilizing Resources for Soviet Resettlement

By Isaac Lakritz

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1991

Jacksonville, a young growing community of 10,000 Jews, has resettled the highest number of Soviet immigrants per capita through its creative mobilization of resources. Under a cooperative arrangement, Lutheran Social Services of Jacksonville provides staff and obtains funding for the initial stages of the resettlement process, enabling the Jewish community to focus upon acculturation of the new Jewish Americans. Jacksonville's experience illustrates how large number of immigrants can be resettled by smaller communities.
