Preparation of Workers for Casework Practice in the Jewish Agency

By Saul Hofstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1968

Whether acknowledged or not, the Jewish agency has a purpose related to the Jewish community. To relate oneself realistically to those Jewish purposes, it is necessary to know something about them and to see them in the context of the overall structure of community services. Thus, students of social work who intend to work in Jewish communal service should be trained during school in fields of personal and communal Jewishness. This will help improve both the worker's own sense of Jewish identity as well as her ability to connect with her clients and strengthen the Jewish community as a whole.
