The Detroit Experiment

By A. L. Sudran

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1947

The Jewish Welfare Federation of Detroit was organized in 1926 to plan, coordinate, and finance the activities which the Jews of Detroit recognized as the responsibility of a total community. These responsibilities included the social welfare, educational, recreational, and health needs of Jews locally, nationally and overseas; overall guidance to the specific agencies serving these needs; and the raising, budgeting, and disbursement of the funds required by Federation and its beneficiary agencies to carry out these purposes. This piece highlights the experience of the organization.
