This article explores the area of fund raising as it relates to the Jewish Welfare Fund/Federation of Jewish Philanthropies and its role in supporting the needs of the Jewish community. The piece asserts that the campaign for contributions to support this fund have been successful in supporting the Jewish Common Denominator. The piece also poses questions as to whether the campaign embodies a social work process. The article concludes by asserting that the major and basic aspects of Jewish federated funding lend themselves to a social work process.
