The Jewish Community --A Social Worker's View
This article reflects on the view of Jewish communal service and the Jewish community from the perspective of social workers. The perspective emphasizes that a community--like an individual--must be seen as a whole and with a level of objectivity. The piece goes on to look at the value of differences in the community as well as the forces that unite the different parts of the Jewish community. These forces include the desire for a society of free people with opportunities for all, a desire to enrich and strengthen Jewish life and the desire to assist individuals in their search for security and fulfillment, among other goals. The piece concludes by affirming the value of finding a mission that can achieve these goals.
