Rabbis and Jewish Community Relations Workers -- Serving the Jewish Community
This article looks at the relations between rabbis and American Jewish community relation workers. The piece begins by looking at the history of this relationship and notes that up until World War I, the rabbi in the Jewish community served the role as the community relation worker in America. The author explores the evolving dimension of the relationship and the eventual divergence between rabbis who were associated with more religious notions and community workers who moved towards secularism. The author asserts that the most important aspect of their role, is their relationship to their own image projection of the American Jewish community. The piece concludes by affirming that both entities are important parts of the Jewish community that require each other's help.
