Present Programs of Training for Jewish Communal Service

By Walter A. Lurie

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

The author's stated goal is to summarize the training programs of six national institutions. They are: Yeshiva University, the Jewish Theological Seminary, the Hebrew Union College- Jewish Institute of Religion, Dropsie College, the National Jewish Welfare Board, and the Training Bureau for Jewish Communal Service. Prior to describing each institution, Lurie delves into their similarities and differences. Finally, the author ends the article by posing a large amount of pressing, yet unanswerable questions, two of which are noteworthy. First, what justification is there to speak of a "Jewish communal service" as a professional field of work? And second, what is the Jewish component in Jewish communal service?
