The Future of the Field of Jewish Community Relations
By Jules Cohen
The author reflects on the past and future of Jewish community relations, offering a number of predictions about the direction of Jewish community relations. These include: that overt manifestations of anti-Semitism are bound to continue; that interreligious relationships and church-state controversies will figure more prominently in the coming period; and that there will be new and increasingly complex problems in the area of civil rights to be faced. The author states that we may even change the name of the field to "Jewish Community Service," reflecting the positive image of a Jewish community that does not limit its activities to problems of a self-interest nature, but a community, as an integral part of the American society, concerned with and willing to work actively for the improvement of the general American welfare.
