The Jewish Community Faces the Great Society; Implications for the Philosophy and Program of Jewish Communal Services
This piece explores the specific impact of the Great Society programs on the philosophy and programs of the Jewish community and their communal services. Within this area, the piece looks at how the professional field of Jewish communal service has lagged behind in the face of the population growth and an increased need for services. The author also acknowledges that although the Jewish communal agencies are serving what is essentially a middle class population, there is a population of the Jewish poor that can benefit from government support within the context of Great Society. The author also highlights the issue of church and state relationships and the potential for violations while also supporting the idea that it may be necessary to reexamine how this relationship may fit within the aims of the Great Society. The author also looks at the prime objective of Jewish communal service and potential changes under the banner of health care where new advances allow for opportunities for Jewish Community Centers to be involved. The author concludes by asserting the importance of supporting the goals of Great Society as well maintaining a commitment to the Great Jewish Society.
