Jewish Social Service Agencies and the Jewish School

By Benjamin L. Yapko

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1968

The goal of Jewish education is to impart to individuals the values, identity, and religion of the Jewish community. It is unreasonable to expect "Jewish education" as a single field to tackle this goal; rather, the commitment and support of all agencies and institutions that constitute the Jewish community must be employed. There is a variety of services that Jewish social agencies can provide in the context of the Jewish school such as diagnostic testing, support services for individuals with special needs, and staff training. It would benefit the entire community for such an overlap in services to spread throughout all American Jewish communities.
