By Louis Berkowitz

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

The author explores ways in which Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) can act as agents of social change. He structures his article to address the following questions: (1) How can centers determine their social responsibilities? (2) How can centers operate as agents of change? (3) How can centers motivate their members regarding social change? (4) How can social issues be made meaningful to a center board, staff and membership? (5) How can centers lead for social change without jeopardizing relationships with those who may oppose these changes? (6) What are the professional components to the work?
