Israel's Crisis: Its Effect on the American Jewish Community and its Implications for Jewish Communal Service

By Leonard J. Fein

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

The near complete victory of liberals in America during the 1960s to embrace openness, science, and progress has left these liberals with the task once relegated to conservatives, the task of ensuring the survival of community awareness in an amalgamating society. A year after the Six Day War, the American Jewish community has come to realize its natural inclinations to protect itself and must take care to fortify and strengthen its sense of togetherness. At the same time, this togetherness cannot be in opposition to the black American community, even in the face of exaggerated black anti-Semitism. An American society that accepts a variety of cultures without judging by a white norm should be the common goal for Jews and blacks alike.
