Jewish Communal Service - The Shaping of a Profession

By Herbert Millman

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

The author responds to Samuel J. Silberman's presentation entitled "Jewish Communal Service -- The Shaping of a Profession," found in this issue of the journal. The author agrees with Silberman's fundamental desire to clarify the nature of the Jewish communal profession, and notes that a number of distinct disciplines fall under this umbrella. But focusing on the common cause of serving the Jewish community, rather than on differential disciplines, can be the cohesive factor in the Jewish professional community, the author suggests.
