Social Change and the Jewish Center

By Morris Levin

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

The author examines a series of social issues / social problems in order to explore how Jewish Centers (JCCs) can respond to them. The issues include, among others: permissive parenting; the absence of an extended adult family in children's lives (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.); sex education; parental absenteeism; "bigness" -- i.e. the dominance of the large and corporate rather than the small and local; increasing leisure time; a "valueless society"; a religiously pluralist society; and race relations.
