The Professional in a Smaller Jewish Community

By William Avrunin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1946

The author describes the challenges of finding suitable professionals to staff small Jewish communities. The focus of communal organization in the smaller Jewish community consciously, or more likely in some nebulous, groping way, is the development of an atmosphere and environment which will foster the emergence of an American Jewish life--a Jewish life in America based on the democratic principle of cultural pluralism which will meet the emotional needs of the Jewish boy, girl, and adult in a social situation in which he is a member of a particular minority group. In doing so, it seeks to preserve and enhance the values of that minority culture so that it can continue to make a vital contribution to the general national culture in which we live.
