Jewish Survival and the Jewish Cultural Arts

By Carl Urbont

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1973

Jewish cultural arts cannot stand alone, the author asserts, but must be coupled with universal arts, even in the setting of a Jewish community center. But the converse is equally true, he contends: to offer universal arts without the Jewish makes the Jewish community center an anachronism. The author discusses Jewish approaches to the arts, as relating to study, the Bible, Hebrew, Yiddish, social issues, and urban living.
