The author reviews developments in several fields of Jewish communal service in America, focusing on predominant influences that cut across functional lines. These developments include: expanding work with immigrants on the part of Jewish organizations; cultural and religious struggle within the Jewish community, and efforts to foster Jewish unity; dynamics between volunteer and professional in organizational life; assimilation, Jewish content, and problems of Jewish continuity; differences of opinion between professional fields; and the impacts of the birth of the modern State of Israel.
