The Jewish Casework Agency: Problems and Prospects in a Time of Paradox

By David Zen, Irving Greenberg

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

Jewish casework agencies are not as well known or as well esteemed as they ought to be within the Jewish community, the authors assert. They review the history of Jewish casework agencies; analyze the relationship of these agencies' missions to the central Jewish ideas of Tzedakah (charity) and Chesed (loving-kindness); explore the Jewish nature of Jewish casework agencies; and discuss how these agencies can strengthen Jews and Judaism. Lay and professional leaders of Jewish casework organizations should strive to emphasize the Jewish components of their agencies, the authors argue.
