The author attempts to demonstrate how some of the accepted principles in community organization have been applied in a real situation, and to indicate the soundness of these principles as a result of the application. For demonstration purposes, two situations which took place in Toledo, OH are summarized to indicate how some of the basic skills and techniques in the community organization process have been applied in order to bring about some basic changes in the structure of some of the social agencies of the Jewish community. The author focuses on three principles in particular: timing; democratic practices; and broad community participation.
