Community Involvement and Traditional Priorities - Compatible Objectives of the Jewish Community Center

By David Dubin

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

Involvement in the urban environment and Jewish communal interests should both be within the mandate of the Jewish Community Center (JCC) and can be reconciled as equally important parts of the institutional agenda. The JCC should continue to offer services to the Jewish community, but should be flexible enough to participate in urban-related activities, concrete social action project such as local rent control legislation; co-sponsoring public housing project youth center. Criteria proposed for working out this relationship were: diagnosis of community need; matching center skills to specific projects; assessing staff workload; balancing being overextended against being too insular.
