Kol Israel arevim ze la ze!

By Rita Drozdinskaya

JDC International Centre for Community Development, July 7, 2003

In a speech given at the European JCC Conference of 2003, the lecturer, Rita Drozdinskaya, addresses the restoration of Jewish values through the development of Jewish Community Centers around the world. The author rejoices in the celebration of Jewishness due to the over 170 JCCs that have been created, declaring the 1990s a romantic period of Jewish renewal. However, the she also addresses the organizational problems of many JCCs. Although the progress of these JCCs has been great, there is a lack of participation of professional employees in their programs, and many of the rabbis who are involved lack experience and are often not tolerant towards non-religious people and other Jewish organizations. The author moves on to suggest that JCCs will greatly benefit when they not only prompt a bond between the members of the same community, but with Jews all over the world.
