Shaping the Jewish Communal Agenda -- The Professional Role

By Sanford Solender

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1983

This article looks at the role of the professional in shaping the Jewish communal agenda. The author argues that agenda building involves making hard choices; this means that some issues are not included each year. An agenda which includes everything is a pious expression of hope which will have little practical effect on the utilization of communal energies and resources. Primarily, agenda shaping involves judgments by knowledgeable people who are prepared to take responsibility for their decisions, to bear the approval and disapproval which comes with this, and to assure the initiatives in implementing action on the whole agenda.
