Where Are We or Where Are We Going in Jewish Community Relations--1966

By Alan D. Kandel

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1966

This piece explores the situation and future of Jewish community relations in 1966. The author identifies the Jewish role in the civil rights movement and the advantages and problems with it. The author asserts that through the involvement in the struggle, other values have been lost but he also mentions that the Jewish community was at its best in working for civil rights legislation. The author elaborates on the divisions that developed between the black community and the Jewish community during this time. He moves on to highlight the lack of shared interest at a community level in joint program formation to improve relations. The author concludes by affirming that there will be greater difficulty in the future if they don't find answers to these issues in the present.
