The Professional Aspects of Center Work: An Examination of Setting and Goals as they Relate to Social Work

By Mitchell I. Ginsberg, Irving Miller

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1961

Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) of the early 1960s approach their communities with many of the methods and goals of non-Jewish social work organizations, especially in the field of group work. In order to maximize healthy Jewish living, the authors argue that JCCs should dedicate themselves primarily to identifying, addressing, and growing from issues of Jewish communal life. To discover and discuss these essential Jewish values, JCCs can draw valuable insight from general principles of social work and develop new ways of working with the Jewish community using those principles.
