The Communalization of Jewish Center Services

By Charles Miller, Howard Adelstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1970

As the Jewish community fans out across the country, the fragmentation of the community leads to an ever-increasing gap between needs and resources. The Jewish community center (JCC) may be a useful tool to fill this gap. While involvement in community services, by and large, has not been a significant part of the mission of most JCCs, building up this component has proven to be a useful tool in allowing the JCC to become a significant agency in dealing with Jewish communal problems and in helping to combat the problems caused by fragmentation.
