The Jewish Family Agency: Individual and Group Casework Services that Build Jewish Identity

By David Zeff

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1973

Despite fulfilling functions central to traditional Jewish teachings, the author notes, Jewish family service agencies find themselves on the margins of Jewish life. He explores why this is so, and suggests that Jewish family service agencies should create a more central role for themselves by recasting their narrative as a strengthening of both personal and communal Jewish identity in a time of crisis.
