Sectarianism in the American Society Today; Impact on Jewish Communal Services

By Arnold Aronson

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1965

Responding to Ben Halpern's "Sectarianism and the Jewish Community," which appeared in the preceding issue of this journal (vol. 42, no. 1), the author discusses the balance between particularistic and universalistic foci in sectarian communal service, comparing the Jewish communal field to its Catholic and Protestant counterparts. He finds that the Jewish field is not as different from these Christian denominations as Halpern would have it. The author outlines how group cohesiveness intersects with integration into general society.
