Rabbis and Jewish Community Relations Workers -- Serving the Jewish Community
By Isaac Franck
This piece explores the relationship and role of rabbis and Jewish community workers to each other and the American Jewish community. The piece begins by noting that community relations activities are part of the accepted definition of the rabbi's role. In addition, Jewish community relations work often encroaches in the area of religion through involvement with Christian leaders, clerical members and lay staff in a variety of areas. The author concludes by asking the American Jewish community to consider reflecting on the nature of the community as well as the image that the community wants to project to its neighbors. The author believes that once these questions are answered, the roles of rabbis and community workers can be better defined within this context.
