Jewish Community Relations - A Profile Today

By Walter A. Lurie

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1969

The late 1960s were a "time of multiple and interacting problems" that left many unsure about the Jewish community's stance regarding several issues. As many people are overwhelmed by global threats, they have become disillusioned with group identification, resulting in a spontaneously competitive environment for Jewish community relations. Within this fractured community exist groups that ally with blacks, with members of other faiths, with Zionists, and with students. In order to unify the Jewish community and accomplish significant goals, the Jewish community needs to solidify relationships with a variety of other groups and develop a common cause that grows out of Jewish values and commitments.
