An Alternative Perspective on Training Jewish Communal Workers

By Bernard Reisman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1976

This article explores the impact of implementing new curricula for training Jewish communal workers in the graduate and post-graduate setting. The author asserts that a tension exists in current graduate school curricula between emphasizing the Judaic requirement and the technical skills. The author acknowledges this dichotomy, though suggests that there is a strong need for more courses in Jewish history, culture, and religion. Lastly, the author holds that in assimilating all of these factors, the curriculum should always teach the student to be a self-directed and independent practitioner.
