The Priorities for the Organized Jewish Community - Federation as the Facilitator for Service Delivery

By William Avrunin

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

Setting priorities for Federation spending cannot be uniform across all communities, although certain principles can serve as guideposts. For example, a Federation director should remember that a motivated group of funders with a workable, if not essential, program idea is more likely to succeed in their enterprise than an unenthusiastic group of secondary supporters of even the most "worthy" cause. Thus, the Federation should be a meeting-ground for all parts of the community, but board members should be chosen with discernment to qualifications. In order to provide the broad support of the entire community, Federation professionals must have strong relationships with agency partners while envisioning the bigger picture, which seeks to improve the lives of all Jews, in the U.S., Israel, and abroad.
