Community Relations Implications in the Use of Public Funds by Sectarian Agencies

By Robert Morris, Arnold Gurin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Fall 1956

The authors explore the community relations implications of Jewish organizations using public funding. They identify three broad categories of government funding for sectarian organizations: purchase of services, support of special demonstration projects, and contributions to capital construction, especially hospitals. It must eventually be asked, the authors contend, whether the rationale for maintaining a voluntary service loses its force if it operates as a conduit for governmental service and financing.
