Jewish Community Organization- Functions and Structures
By H. L. Lurie
The author presents a survey of the most salient aspects of Jewish community organization. Among other topics, Lurie discusses the need to focus on the individual as the basic unity of community organization, the health field, anti-Semitism, the need to develop and promote intra-group relationships with an emphasis on "Jewish culture," the difference between small and large Jewish communities, recent cultural changes, and the limits of communal organization. Finally, the author concludes by calling for a shift in public attention towards domestic and internal considerations, given that the war years had required that American Jewry focus on external matters.
