A Model Multi-Service Community-Based Agency

By Arden J. Geldman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1981

This article describes the work of Ark, a free clinic organized by the Jewish community in Chicago. The Ark describes itself as "The Torah's vehicle for sustaining individuals in a period of crisis." Although the total Jewish community is involved, policy formation (at the Ark) has an Orthodox or Halachic orientation. Over a hundred and fifty volunteers, lay people and professionals, young and old, men and women, Orthodox, Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionist, non-affiliated, and disaffiliated, find a nexus at the Ark. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, 58:2.
