The Central City and the Jewish Community Relations Worker

By Sidney Z. Vincent

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1962

The author explores what degree and type of responsibility the Jewish community should take for the central cities it is leaving behind for the suburbs, using his own city of Cleveland, OH as an example. He discusses problems of poverty, de facto segregation, and lack of opportunity for African-Americans ("Negroes") who remain in urban centers, and the issues confronting Jewish community relations professionals seeking to find productive and respectful ways of working with Black communities.
