A Preferred Family Policy for American Jewish Community

By Bernard Reisman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1994

For fear of jeopardizing community cohesion, a state of gridlock currently exists in which Jewish communal leaders are reluctant to affirm the modified traditional familyâ??two parents in the home, both of whom may workâ??as the preferred family type. The bold initiatives necessary to foster and strengthen two-parent families can only become possible once communal leaders affirm the preferred status of the modified traditional family while clearly stating the Jewish community's commitment to inclusiveness and sensitivity to all family types.
