The Unique Jewish Family Agency

By Morris Bernstein, Felice Perlmutter

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

The rationale for the Jewish family agency has been a recurrent issue in American Jewish social welfare. Over the years, many articles have discussed the question from various perspectives. Two themes, however, have been of continuous interest: first, is there a special content in Jewish casework which distinguishes it from casework in general; second, what is the special contribution of the Jewish family agency to the Jewish community? The authors state that the Jewish family agency has a unique mandate from several vantage points related to (a) client needs, (b) Jewish community needs and (c) broader societal needs. They discuss each of these points in turn. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.54 no.4, Summer 1978.
