The Revolution for Equality - the Urban Challenge to the Jewish Community

By Simon Slavin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1967

The author details inverse trends affecting the black and Jewish communities of the United States, with Jews trending ever more suburban and middle class, and with African-Americans ("Negroes" in the article) trending ever more urban, poor and subject to all manner of economic, social and health woes. The author explores implications for intergroup relations, specifically ways in which the field of Jewish Community Relations should address these issues.
