The president in 1968 of the National Conference for Jewish Communal Service (NCJCS) assesses the achievements and areas for improvement in the Conference. He highlights the Conference's ardent support for the State of Israel, recalling the first International Conference of Jewish Communal Service held in Jerusalem only two months after the conclusion of the Six Day War. As well, he introduces the pivotal question for this conference of the nature and direction of the NCJCS. Is the Conference made up of individuals or organizations, and does it have the resources and will power to take an active stance on issues of international concern? The president suggests that the Conference is now an adolescent searching for maturity, which waits to be achieved in a matter of years.
