Jewish Identity and the Function of the Family and Children's Agency

By Judith Lang

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

A response to Charles Miller's "Jewish Identity and Agency Function" in the Fall 1983 edition of this Journal. The author states that she agrees with Miller's questioning of why the field of Jewish Communal Service has failed to respond significantly to the crisis of Jewish identity and survival. She supports the search for the complex reasons for this phenomenon. But she disagrees with his conclusion of creating a "new concept of function" and a new profession with a sense of "ethnic mission." In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, 60: 2.
