Rethinking the Politics of Rescue: Supporting Jewish Renewal Around the Globe

By Joy Sisisky

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Fall 2009

Many Jews of Yemen, the former Soviet Union, and other countries, despite opportunities to move to Israel, the United States, or Canada, choose to remain in their home countries. Organizations such as the Jewish Joint Distribution Committee are charged with helping these Jews to continue to live Jewish lives and build community among hostile neighbors. Programs such as a multi-national camp in Szarvas, Hungary and globalizing technology such as Facebook help these Jews to connect with the greater Jewish community without leaving their home countries, and such initiatives will be vital to the ongoing development of these sometimes isolated communities around the world.

(This double issue of the Journal of Jewish Communal Service is dedicated to SJCS, the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion's School of Jewish Communal Service).
