Extension Programming in the Jewish Community Center

By Louis H. Sobel

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

Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) have placed too much emphasis on the Center (i.e. the building) and too little on the Community itself. The Detroit JCC's extension programming, seeking to create leisure time service stations at various locations throughout the city, demonstrates that a community center need not consider its only goal to be causing people to walk through the door of one particular building.
