Jewish Communal Services: Historical Perspectives

By Harold Silver

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1962

The author reviews developments in several fields of Jewish communal service in America, focusing on predominant influences that cut across functional lines. These developments include: expanding work with immigrants on the part of Jewish organizations; cultural and religious struggle within the Jewish community, and efforts to foster Jewish unity; dynamics between volunteer and professional in organizational life; assimilation, Jewish content, and problems of Jewish continuity; differences of opinion between professional fields; and the impacts of the birth of the modern State of Israel.
