The Dilemma of the Conference

By M. W. Beckelman, Gilbert Harris

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, June 1936

The authors describe an internal struggle within the National Conference of Jewish Social Service, between two member organizations, the Association of Practitioners in Jewish Social Agencies on one hand, and the National Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds on the other. The former group supports actions and resolutions in support of labor-motivated relief, unemployment and welfare legislation; the latter fears that the NCJSS is becoming too leftist, too "red" (i.e. Communist) in orientation.
