The author discusses the relationship between Jewish Federations, and other centralized planning and fundraising bodies in the Jewish community, and the service agencies which they fund. Even the most successful relationships are fraught with possibilities for frustration and mutual blame, the author notes, and the leaders of both types of institution must acknowledge that the relationship is a two-way street. As Federations struggle to raise funds, and agencies struggle to interpret their services to the wider community, the author cautions both to keep their ultimate missions in mind, and take mutual responsibility.
