This piece highlights various aspects of Jewish social work in Latin America. Economically, the situation of the Jews varies, though in general they appear to be in satisfactory circumstances. Jews are engaged in retail trade, in import and export, and increasingly in manufacturing. Community organization and the development of Jewish institutions have begun only in recent years in most countries. In almost every city there is a Central Committee similar to the Jewish Community Council in cities in the United States. In most cases they sponsor all campaigns and often provide maintenance deficit of member bodies. They constitute a constructive and very necessary organization for the development of sound policies, good relations and useful programs.
