Recent events suggest that more needs to be done to prevent organizational crises. When nonprofit organizations "fall from grace, " it is with a thunderous noise. This article explores the ideal role of boards against the reality of the failure of boards to adequately perform their legally mandated functions. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.72 no.3, Spring 1996.
