Jewish Communal Services for a Native-Born Jewish Community - Values, Changes, and Perspectives
The author argues that the American Jewish community has not only benefited materially and gained an acceptance greater than ever before in remembered history but also acculturated to the American norm of giving power and authority to the few and the wealthy. The author sees this trend as one of decline. For the largely 'cultural' American Jewish community to prosper, it must drop the "services" from "Jewish Communal Services". In other words, exchanging service for membership fees contributes to the decline of quality and investment across the board of Jewish community involvement, and the practice should be abandoned.
