New Patterns of Jewish Communal Service

By William Avrunin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1967

Jewish community service over the next five years is likely to be further impacted by the civil rights movement, increased availability of government social services, changes in the character of Jewish populations and of Jewish social services personnel, and the increased importance of annual funding drives. This impact will be seen in the increased provision of services in a non-sectarian manner, namely the increased provision of some services to groups outside the Jewish community. This approach will change the nature of the Jewish social work manpower pool to one that hires the "specialized few," rather than employing a larger pool of candidates addressing Jewish communal issues. Services specializing in supporting Jewish identity will, however, continue to be provided to the Jewish community by these agencies.
