Let Us Look At The Record

By I. E. Goldwasser

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

The author begins by explaining the purpose of the National Conference of Jewish Social Work, which is to both explore the field-specific progress that was made in the previous year and to look to the future, and then discusses the progress of Jewish social service during the first fifty years (1900-1949) of the Conference's existence. Through a comparison with the text of the Conference's first proceeding in 1900, he cites numerous examples of tangible change, such as the shift from dealing with Jewish immigration to a consideration of what happens to individual Jews. The author then touches upon problems in Jewish education, discusses the development of Jewish hospitals, and concludes by listing the necessary consequences of the trends listed in the article, such as the increased demand for properly trained social workers.
