Essential Competencies for the Jewish Communal Professional

By David Dubin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1983

The mission of Jewish objectives is inextricably related to the essential skills of professional practice. A worker with a strong Jewish commitment, but lacking in organizational and diagnostic skills is limited in what he can achieve as a practitioner even though his heart may be in the right place. A Jewishly committed caseworker is not effective if he does not have the skill to diagnose the significance of ethnicity or religious practice in either problems of self-image or familial conflict. A Jewishly committed group worker is ineffective if he does not have the skill to market and engineer an important cultural program. A Jewishly committed Federation worker is ineffective if he lacks the conceptual or communication skills to design and promote a new program of Jewish education and so on.
