The Jewish Community Center as an Arm of the Organized Jewish Community

By Herbert Millman

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

The author discusses the communal purpose of the Jewish Community Center (JCC), focusing on the functional relationship of the center to the organized Jewish community and its central instrument, the Jewish federation. He explains the generally accepted expectations of the center for provision of certain services and the fulfillment of certain functions. JCCs should seek to concretize these objectives, however, the author argues, and to move toward a more conscious and defined approach to filling these needs. A more deliberate approach would allow better prioritization and explicit assignation of responsibilities.
