Preliminary Research Findings in Jewish Community Centers
The purpose of this paper has been to report on some of the research activities conducted in Jewish community centers affiliated with the Associated Ys during the past two and one-half years. While most of the data was collected by a large group of social work students, which does not represent an ideal method of obtaining information, it does represent an initial effort in the right direction. It is hoped that more adequate research resources will be obtained in the future. Findings presented in this paper should be considered more in the form of hypotheses than "facts," and these hypotheses should be tested in much tighter designs. The center field offers fine laboratories for research in intergroup relations, attitudes, group interaction, and other areas. The findings of such studies cannot only aid policymakers and administrators of community centers in offering more effective and appropriate services to their communities but can also contribute to knowledge in the social sciences.
