In response to concerns voiced about the spending priorities of Jewish welfare federations, a survey was conducted of San Diego Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox Jews. These individuals were asked to rank the importance of Jewish organizations in their community. Although some variation was found between observant and non-observant Jews, there was general agreement about the relative value of local organizations. Thus, the survey concludes that a reasonable consensus can be reached on welfare priorities, clearing the way for decisive leadership to direct social program funding in the future.
