Evaluation of Current Research in the Jewish Social Service Field

By Bertram J. Black

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1949

The author classifies the different types of possible research projects into five subsections, and then explains that about 90 percent of Jewish social service research has either focused on descriptive studies or empirical clientele definitions. Black concludes by offering his thoughts on how to carry the current work forward, while simultaneously making it more effective. These suggestions include involving, to a greater extent, those who practice social work in the actual carrying out of experiments, and more rigorously employing the scientific method within Jewish social service research.
