What Kind of Jewish Communal Worker Do We Need?

By Arnulf M. Pins

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

The author explores the role of the Jewish communal worker in shaping American Jewish life, beginning with an assessment of the purpose of Jewish communal service. He then defines eleven necessary characteristics for an effective Jewish communal worker, and recommends three courses of action to address inadequacies in the Jewish communal field's preparation and production of these workers: (1) Jewish education at all levels must be improved; (2) programs of pre-service and in-service preparation must be expanded; and (3) a united national recruitment effort should be initiated.
