The Jewish Community: A Partnership or a Corporation?

By Gerald A. Teller

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), 1999

This chapter of Board-Staff Relations for the 21st Century, explores two different frameworks for the political structure of the Jewish community. The first is one in which a partnership of the people defines the community; the second is one in which the community operates like a corporation. The author looks to historical examples of community in Ancient Israel and Rabbinic literature to illuminate the importance and meaning of community within the Jewish faith. He concludes by asserting that both approaches are supported by Jewish sources and that both examples emphasize strong centralized leadership.
