Toward the Measurement of Jewish Content in Jewish Community Center Practice

By Melvin B. Mogulof

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1964

The Jewish content in Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) is of keen interest, though it is difficult to measure. The author unpacks a study of JCCs around the United States (though not in Los Angeles, Chicago, or New York) whose goal was to identify factors related to "distinguishing practices" of Jewish life in the centers. The findings offer evidence that the presence of more "distinguishing practices" in a center seem to correspond to less connection with the social welfare community. The author cautions against drawing hasty conclusions from the data, however, and urges continued study of explanations for the relative presence or absence of Jewish content in community centers.
