The Current Manpower Crisis in Jewish Communal Services; Its Impact and its Implications for the Future of the Jewish Community

By Judah J. Shapiro

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

In 1968, the field of Jewish communal service felt a shortage of "manpower" in its institutions. The author argues that Jewish communal service agencies should reexamine the nature of the jobs they provide, matching them with the interests of the new generation and ensuring that jobs reflect the training they require. As well, the field should determine what, precisely is "Jewish" about Jewish communal service and to be open and honest about it. These suggestions apply not only to social work agencies but also to synagogues, schools, and community centers and are meant to strengthen the American Jewish community as a whole.
