Community Planning in Emergencies

By Kurt Peiser

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, December 1932

The latter half of 1930 brought reports to the Bureau of Jewish Social Research from various sections of the country that a number of Federations were encountering difficulty in continuing their programs of community service and in securing the additional funds needed for meeting the added burdens arising out of the prevailing economic depression. Various councils and committees were established to make further inquires into these reports. In 1932, a report was issued outlining problems with the relationships of Jewish organizations to each other and the greater community as well as proposing the formation of a National Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds.
