A Search for Principles in Jewish Community Relations for the Embattled World of Today

By Alan D. Kandel

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1969

The late 1960s presented many challenges to field of Jewish community relations, adding to the complexity of the 1950s which already seemed overwhelming to professionals of the 1940s. In the Jewish community's hyper-awareness of antisemitism, it has blown out of proportion the black anti-Semitism of the New Left, and it must find a new way of addressing black-Jewish relations. As well, the community must examine whether many issues, such as local control of schools, are actually relevant to it before taking a stand. Ultimately, Jews need to affirm their partnership with blacks, recommit themselves to the basic tenets of human rights, and take seriously efforts to bring communities together across wide divides.
