The Rabbi / Social Worker Roundtable

By Sally Weber

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2007

Strengthening synagogue-agency relationships requires that rabbis and social workers build relationships of trust, camaraderie, and understanding, the author contends. She describes the Rabbi/Social Worker Roundtable at Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles, which meets monthly to discuss issues arising from clinical and pastoral counseling, such as setting boundaries, making referrals, and dealing with countertransference. Positive outcomes reported include increased collaborative efforts and referrals.
