The Revolt Against Social Work in the Jewish Community Center

By Nathan Kolodney

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1974

The pre-existing model for Jewish community centers has been a hierarchy, the author explains, in which social workers supervise all other activities and see other activities as secondary means to primary social work-oriented ends. He advocates a new model of the Jewish center as a holistic ecology, in which social workers and other professionals are equals, and in which each type of activity is an end unto itself, simply because center members value it.
