The Ethics of Circumventing the Waiting list

By Norman Linzer

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

By describing an ethical dilemma that is encountered frequently by federation professionals - requests by an infiuential lay leader to circumvent the waiting list for a federation facility - this article demonstrates different ways of thinking about ethics, thereby providing professionals with conceptual tools for analysis. This case illustration serves as a model for the resolution of ethical dilemmas faced by professionals working in any Jewish communal agency; that resolution requires deliberation, a willingness to weigh the many variables and values in conflict, and a tolerance for ambiguity.
