On the Opening of the Seventy-First Annual Meeting of the National Conference of Jewish Communal Service

By Martha K. Selig

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

The author argues that Jewish communal service agencies have a responsibility to remain sectarian even as they work for the greater good, and that the Jewish people should be financially responsible for non-general programs and initiatives. The author urges agency workers not to rely on promises of funding once the Vietnam War ends but to take their work into their own hands by speaking out, raising funds, and affirming their commitment to their Jewish values: "We can let our opportunities pass by or we can actively involve ourselves and our institutions in shaping the nature of the change that will come about.
