First Step in the Development of a Curriculum for In-Service Training of Jewish Community Center Workers

By Arnulf M. Pins

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1962

In order for Jewish community centers to most effectively carry out their mission of enriching American Jewish life, their employees need to be fluent in areas of Jewish concern. However, the author notes that "most workers entering the Jewish community center field in recent years have brought more professional preparation but less Jewish education than their predecessors of one or two decades ago." Thus, an in-service educational curriculum must be developed and implemented to train Jewish center workers to be most effective in a Jewish environment. The author lays out many points of Jewish knowledge that could be included in such a curriculum and challenges the field of Jewish social work to examine and implement his list and others like it.
