The Value of Jewish Components in the Experience of Volunteer Big Brothers

By Ron Shor

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1993

The Jewish family agency has not traditionally been perceived as an instrument of Jewish continuity for volunteers. The extent to which volunteers view their experience in a family agency as an instrument to strengthen their sense of Jewishness was examined in this study of the big brothers of two Jewish agencies. The findings indicate the importance of the agency's Jewish context to big brothers. A change in professionals' approach toward the integration of Jewish components in their work with volunteers is suggested.
