A Cultural Program for the Jewish Community

By Eugene Kohn

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, September 1935

The author reviews the position of American Jewry as a cultural, political and communal group, in light of the many changes which have occurred since the Enlightenment. He discusses the psychological needs of the Jewish community and individual Jews, and lays out an expansive vision of a program of Jewish cultural enrichment and engagement which will allow the Jewish community to enhance its Jewish knowledge and commitment, while bettering the general society as well.
