Relationship of Existing Training Programs to the Needs of Jewish Communal Service

By Martin M. Cohn

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

This paper, written in response to Walter Lurie's article, "Present Programs of Training for Jewish Communal Service," reviews the training programs of six national Jewish institutions against the backdrop of need in various fields of Jewish communal services. The author explains and presents five fields of need, which are the need to meet individual welfare and cultural needs, the necessity to deal with group relations and civic protective problems, the need to provide for overseas needs, and the necessity to meet the problems of central community organization, planning, and financing. In the second section of the paper, Cohn outlines and describes four areas of need in the training of workers for Jewish communal services. Finally, the author presents an analysis of programs against a general background of the needs of the field.
