Relationship of Federation to its Agencies and the Specific Responsibilities of Each

By Arthur Rosichan

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1957

This piece explores the agency-federation relationship and the responsibilities the federation has to agencies. The author begins by identifying the assumptions used in the creation of the federation, which included the idea that in unity there is strength and that the various patterns of community structures necessitated the creation of a central organization to relate, connect and support the totality of needs. The author asserts that functional agencies are neither subordinate to each other nor to the federation, but are instead the lifeblood of the federation and because of their services they allow the federation to exist. The piece concludes by asserting that agencies must be free to encourage interests and activity in their particular function and that the central community should represent the total of community activities.
