Jewish Community Relations: Boundaries and Priorities

By Albert D. Chernin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1978

In the formulation of policies and the projection of program plans for Jewish community relations, the question continually recurs: Does this or that issue fall within the scope of the Jewish community relations field? Some issues that are obviously of Jewish community relations concern today were not always obviously so. Others that appear peripheral may in fact be linked closely to Jewish self-interest. The present extensive and complex Jewish community relations program is the product of a long process, beginning with considerations of self-interest and expanding as our understanding of the relationships between Jewish security and creative survival and the state of the society in general expanded. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.54 no.4, Summer 1978.
