Asked by organizers of the National Conference of Jewish Communal Service to speak about the Jewish Community Center (JCC) and the Great Society, the author explains that he has chosen not to speak merely about how JCC programming can benefit from and interact with President Johnson's war on poverty programs, but rather to take a broad view of the human situation as it is in modern America, in relation to the vision of the Great Society we hope to achieve. He discusses the human condition, the Jewish condition, and the Jewish center condition, in terms of broad cultural, political, religious, social and economic trends.
