In the light of Urban League studies showing under-representation of blacks and other minorities in voluntary social welfare programs in Seattle, the executive director of Jewish Family and Child Service in Seattle addresses the issue of whether blacks should serve on the board of a Jewish agency. Approaching the question from the perspective of the challenge of Jewish continuity in the modern world, the author concludes that inclusion of blacks is clearly in conflict with the aim of the agency. While the agency serves a large non-Jewish clientele, agency control should be in Jewish hands, in order to maintain the fundamentally sectarian nature of the institution.
