Changing Jewish Attitudes - and Their Consequences for Jewish Community Relations Workers

By Manheim S. Sphairo

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

By 1961, Jews had achieved equal access to high-paying jobs, good colleges, and prestigious resorts. Yet many Jews still dreamed of gaining true equality in the eyes of their non-Jewish neighbors. The author argues that for Jews to achieve this equality, they must first prepare themselves for it. American Jews must educate themselves about Jewish religion and traditions, accept their Jewish culture without embarrassment, associate amicably with non-Jews, and encourage their children to make non-Jewish friends. Working with the Jewish community in these areas must precede working for the Jewish community in American society.
