The Jewish Family Service Agency: Its Functions in the Jewish Community

By Peter M. Glick

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1975

The author asserts that Jewish content, while not unimportant, is not the paramount value of Jewish social services. Instead, he argues, the sociological functions of Jewish family service agencies (which are not, in themselves, different from non-Jewish social work) are the primary way to ensure Jewish continuity, because they are carried out by Jewish agencies for the benefit, primarily, of the Jewish community.
