Current Directions of Sectarian Welfare in America

By Robert Morris

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1961

As a result of shifting demographics and evolving communal concerns, sectarian support for young children and the elderly decreased proportionately over the 1950s. As well, a given sectarian agency was likely to have aided proportionally fewer individuals who identified as members of that sect. In the coming years, therefore, sectarian agencies are likely either to continue to diversify their clientele or resolve themselves to provide sectarian services to an increasingly smaller percentage of their sectâ??s population.
