Contemporary debates on the development of Jewish community centers (JCCs) tend not to focus on the validity of sectarianism and the Jewish objectives of JCCs, but rather on how to effectively implement Jewish objectives. There are two approaches to this challenge: 1) the mental health approach, positing that Jews have emotional issues with their Judaism, and that it is the job of the JCC to help people deal with these issues. 2) the Jewish infusion approach, positing that a Jewish center ought to have a Jewish philosophy of its own with which to attract members. Each of these approaches, however, has its own flaws. Ultimately, the major function of the JCC must be as an arm of Jewish social services, serving the needs of its Jewish clientele, regardless of whether those needs are uniquely Jewish.
