Jewish Communal Service - the Shaping of a Profession

By Samuel J. Silberman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1972

The author asserts that the field of Jewish communal service needs better to define itself, and its personnel needs, and to develop specialized training programs for Jewish community professionals. Jewish communal organizations, the author suggests, should devote time, energy and budget resources to the task of becoming "learning institutions" which actively develop its personnel to serve the field's needs.
