Survival and Service: Who? What? Why? How?

By Manheim S. Shapiro

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1971

The American family of the 1970s spans only two generations, divorce is common, and children are reared as much by the media and institutions as by their parents. However, the idealized Jewish family of yesteryear never really existed and cannot be reclaimed; rather, Jews of the next generation will build a new mode of living Jewishly. Jewish communal workers can shape this future community by reaching out to new clients, building inter-organizational bridges, and advocating publicly for particularly Jewish causes. Jewish continuity is guaranteed, though only by active involvement can Jewish professionals make an impact on the Jewish communities of the future.
