The Jewish Federations: The First Hundred Years

By Donald Feldstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), November 1995

The Jewish federation is a unique American invention, although it has deep roots in Jewish tradition. It has evolved from a structure devoted to meeting the social and health needs of American Jews and helping them assimilate into American society to one whose major goal is the strengthening of Jewish identity. In the process, the concept of a continental Jewish community has taken shape. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.72 no.1-2, Fall/Winter 1995/1996.
