Decentralization, Community Control, and Citizen Participation in the Provision of Services for the Jewish Ages

By Bernard Warach

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1975

The author describes the experiences of his agency, the Jewish Association for Services to the Aged (JASA) in New York, over the past six years in completing new building projects and interacting with communities on the local and neighborhood level. JASA was most effective, the author explains, when it was decentralized, well-established in the particular neighborhood, and in places in which Jewish populations made JASA's sectarian affiliation an asset.
