Jewish agencies have a responsibility to meet not only the needs of individuals (both Jews and non-Jews) but also the needs of the Jewish community. This responsibility is discharged by providing both valuable services in a Jewish context and by serving as visible models of Jewish life in America. While the particular areas of most vital importance are constantly debated, Jewish agencies represent the spectrum of Jewish activities, giving life to the values that are taught more formally in other institutions. Thus, while some offer criticisms of the large array of Jewish services available in America, this diversity is actually the lifeblood of the Jewish community.
