The Jewish Vocational Service; A Changing Agency in a Changing World

By Jerome M. Comar

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

Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) activities are changing in response to larger American societal trends, the author reports. He outlines factors driving change, such as improvements in the field's methodology; socio-economic trends; and federal legislative policy; and explores how JVS practitioners are responding to these factors, including: changing the scope of services, exploring the best ways to use public funds as a sectarian agency; retraining for new necessary workplace skills; coping with the automation of job functions; and helping unskilled persons with disabilities.
