The Community Organization Component in Jewish Education

By Bernard Olshansky

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1968

This piece looks at community organization and its relation to Jewish education. The author begins by noting how some people believe that Jewish education seems to have weak support from the Jewish community in terms of adequate manpower or money. The author however affirms that there is a shift in the amount of support given to Jewish education despite the fact that it has not been widely accepted yet. The author goes on highlight why the community organization, seen as a source of bringing together resources and needs, is a vital tool for bridging the gap to Jewish education. The author concludes by highlighting that community organizations may not be the complete solution to improving the effectiveness of Jewish education but with the help of practitioners, their skills in community organizations can be applied in the efforts to improve the effectiveness of Jewish education.
