Jewish Cultural Developments in America

By Elias Picheny

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1951

The author argues that American Jewry is in a critical period, and must focus on defining its values in order better to develop its cultural and religious practices. The major purpose and role of Jewish communal agencies must be to enable people to find their own roads toward a meaningful way of living as American Jews, the author argues, on their own terms and at their own pace.
