Relating to College Youth - Rethinking Federation's Planning Approach

By Rhoda Kopstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1970

The author discusses the integration of college students into the activities of the Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston, and addresses the question of a "generation gap" within Jewish philanthropy. The article describes the recommendations of a committee within Boston's federation, for student positions on federation committees, and for a separate funding mechanism for student projects. Students joined the federation as a coalition, stating their major priority as funding for Jewish education. The author concludes that, while student involvement proved a challenge to both structures and attitudes within the federation, the development of this new relationship enabled a more flexible and dynamic approach.
