Comment, Journal of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1959, Harold Silver

By Harold Silver

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1959

This conference presentation looks at the Jewish content and philosophy in Jewish social work. The piece makes reference to Charles Miller's paper concerning the different approaches to the content of Jewish service, which highlights the divide between positivist who are focused on cultural values and religious aspects in social service as opposed to pragmatist who represent a departure from that motivation. The presentation concludes by advocating for an integrated viewpoint as a meaningful philosophy for Jewish communal service.
