Minutes of the Annual Business Meeting

By Morton I. Teicher

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

Three major resolutions were adopted by the National Conference of Jewish Communal Service (NCJCS). The first issues a call to the United States government to take responsibility for a "united, comprehensive Federal approach" to the alleviating the "urban crisis." This approach includes a $2.00 minimum wage [the minimum wage had been raised in February, 1969 from $1.00 to $1.30], guaranteed work for every able-bodied American, and a "Federal contributory health insurance program." As well, this resolution states, "The Vietnam war must be ended immediately." The second resolution directs the NCJCS to find a way to alleviate the difficulties faced by many Americans immigrating to Israel, and the third urges the American people and government to remain steadfastly in support of Israel "in the face of a propaganda onslaught that attempts to justify Arab terrorism and to reject the right of Israel to defend itself.
