By Melissa R. Cowen

Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion School of Jewish Communal Service, April 2010

This thesis presents the results of a Los Angeles-based case study on the status of Jewish Federation's relations with the Orthodox community, as well as recommendations for how Federation can more effectively engage this community. It reviews the available literature on the subject and offers data from interviews with Orthodox individuals involved in Federation as well as those who choose not to be. In addition, it draws evidence from a community survey on perceptions of the Federation within a cross-section of Los Angeles' Orthodox community.
