Human Values in the Inner City: Implications for Jewish Communal Services

By Dan W. Dodson

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1963

The author looks at the shift in residential patterns among Jews and the resultant effect on the provision of Jewish communal services. He states that today, the Jewish group is almost emancipated from the lower socio-economic fetters with which they contended before World War II . Jewish communal life is no longer in self-contained neighborhoods in the Bronx or Brownsville, but has become, instead, distributed throughout the metropolis. Jews are held together now by communality of interests rather than because people live near each other and share things in common.
