Israel and Pluralism: Framing an Ideology for the Jewish Community Center

By David Dubin

Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1990

The concept of pluralism is the foundation upon which the North American Jewish Community Center movement is based. Israel, which is a pluralistic society in structure but not in mentality, illustrates several implications of pluralism that can be usefully applied to the Center movement: an emphasis on the ties that bind all Jews together, the encouragement of disagreement and a respect for disagreement, the development of strategies that promote a toleration of differences, and a recognition of the importance of religious expression.
