Religious Leaders' Assessment of Jewish Social Service Priorities

By Paul Weinberger, Eugene Brussell

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

The authors explore the results of research into the priorities which rabbis and congregation presidents assigned to social service and educational agencies in their importance to Jewish life in the United States. The study found that Jewish-sponsored hospitals, defense agencies and a free loan society were considered least important by the congregational leaders and rabbis, while Jewish education bureaus and day schools were considered most important.
