The Exercise of Communal Leadership - Relationship and Roles of the Professional and Volunteer

By Charles I. Schottland

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

As Jewish families continue to grow and as parents continue to have children at younger ages, the demand for social services will continue to increase. Resources expended by Jewish social service organizations, largely staffed by non-professional volunteers though guided by the vision of highly capable boards, are being distributed to a minority percentage of Jewish families rather than used to improve the strength of social services broadly across all of America. The author argues that "the time has come in the history of voluntary social work, when social planning can be sterile and relatively ineffective unless it is carried on with the knowledge of its relationship to the broad public policy issues."
