Social Action, Social Work and Jewish Social Philosophy in Jewish Community Center Practice

By Charles S. Levy

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

This article is an attempt to answer a provocative question which has been framed by Jewish community center workers at regular intervals and in various forms during the past few months. In effect, the question has been an expression of concern that the preoccupation of Jewish community center boards and staffs with the agency's Jewish purposes has diverted the center worker's professional attention from social action. Of specific concern is the assumed consequence that many practicing and prospective center workers have been attracted to other fields of service more in tune with the feeling of social responsibility which influenced their choice of a social work career.
