Mineral City: An Experience in Process- Oriented Community Organization

By Leon Ginsburg

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

Community organization methodology can be placed in two categories, the author posits: reform (focusing on achieving specific goals) and process (focused on engaging and developing the community's capacity). While Jewish communities have generally preferred reform-oriented communal activity, the author argues that process-oriented approaches may yield advantages for Jewish communities seeking to define and meet their needs. He relates the story of a Midwestern Jewish community's deliberations over how best to meet youth needs as an example of the importance of process.
