Changing Expectations of Jewish Communal Professionals: A Panel

By Sally Weber, Marla Eglash Abraham, John Fishel, David Levy

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Fall 2009

A panel facilitated by Marla Eglash Abraham gives Sally Weber, John Fishel, and David Levy the opportunity to speak about expectations for Jewish professionals in 2009. Weber highlights the primarily non-sectarian character of today's agencies as well as the shift in focus from process to content. Fishel discusses pluralism and diversity as well as the degree to which current Jewish professionals are required to have more formal education than in generations past. Levy focuses on the diminishing barriers between organizations and ways in which young professionals can be trained in an era of ever-increasing technology. These perspectives give voice to various sectors in today's Jewish professional world.
