The South Side Program: A Program of Jewish Community Service in Chicago

By Stephen S. Baumann

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

A Study of South Side Jewish Community of Chicago was made during 1944 jointly by the Jewish Charities and the Jewish People's Institute to ascertain the recreational and educational needs of the Jewish population in this area. According to the survey there are approximately 41,000 Jewish people living on the south side, with about one-half of them not related to any Jewish organization, either local or national in character. The survey indicated that aside from congregations and social clubs, there were no Jewish communal organizations on the South Side to motivate the community to provide the necessary over-all recreational and cultural activities. As a result of this survey and its recommendations, the J.P.I, is conducting a demonstration program in this area.
