The Status and Future of the Jewish Family Agency

By Charles Miller

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1969

There are those who argue that the sectarian family agency is redundant with non-sectarian agencies and therefore should be shut down for the sake of efficiency and in the face of more pressing social concerns. However, central to democracy is the expression and manifestation of cultural identity, which is embodied in Jewish sectarian agencies. It is critical, therefore, that Jewish family agencies continue to exist and excellently serve Jewish populations. This work not only enriches the Jewish community but also plays an important role in the field of general social improvement.
