The Great Society: Implications for the Jewish Community Center Field

By Morton I. Teicher

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1966

This article explores the role of the Jewish community in the face of Great Society. The author begins by asserting that the Jewish community is ageless and timeless and further asserts that its continued existence should not be dependent upon some connection to the Great Society. The author then shifts his focus to issues concerning the poverty of Jewish culture, spirit and commitment which he says are the major problems facing the community and which necessitate action. The author argues that the Jewish community should not change its community centers such that they are open to all. Rather, the author asserts that Jewish community centers should intensify and support their current programs for Jewish communal concerns.
