Implications of the Use of Public Funds in Jewish Communal Services

By Martha K. Selig

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1959

This piece explores the dilemmas involved in the use of government funds to support social services and in particular how it might affect Jewish communal services. The piece finds that hospitals that have used government funds have found their experiences to be rewarding. The piece also notes that it is still possible to maintain the Jewish character of service agencies while receiving funds from the government. The piece concludes by affirming that the relationship between voluntary agencies and the government depends on self-reliance and mutual respect towards the goal of serving the public interest.
