Jewish Communal Services: Values and Change - Summary of Group Discussions

By William Avrunin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1960

Jewish social workers, through developing and leading Jewish events and programs, shape the scope and focus of Jewish communal life. As such, they are in key position to shape the direction of the American Jewish community. The 1960 conference of the National Conference of Jewish Communal Service discussed this responsibility and charged the Jewish social worker with creating a Jewish communal experience appropriate to the rapidly changing American climate of the 1960s. The conference concluded that Jewish communal service should focus on deepening Jewish education, conducting demographic research, and uniting across boundaries to create meaningful and enriching cultural and communal experiences.
