Social Work Education and Jewish Communal Service and Jewish Community Centers: Time for a Change

By Bernard Reisman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1972

Changes in the 1970s Jewish community present new tasks for the Jewish community center's (JCC's) development of a deeper, more meaningful Jewish life for its primarily middle-class members. At the same time, the profession of social group work, in which many JCC employees have traditionally be trained, has also changed its focus to the inner city and its associated problems. Thus, JCCs can no longer rely on social work schools to provide adequate training for their professionals and instead must cultivate an alternative program of study that will generate leadership more capable to meet the needs of today's Jews.
