The Structure and Leadership Role of the North American Jewish Community

By Bernard Reisman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1997

The North American Jewish community is one of the four great Diasporas in Jewish history, each of which flourished at a time when the host country itself was a center of intellectual thought and cultural achievements. It has a very extensive and well-organized structure and an unparalleled cadre of well-educated Jewish professionals. The key issue is whether the leaders of the North American Jewish community will address the challenge of continuity and give leadership to world Jewry in the twenty-first century. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.74 no.2, Winter 1997.
