Professional Currents

By William Avrunin, Julius Weil, Joseph Kleiman, Ben L. Grossman, Ira I. Sonnenblick

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1951

This article presents four essays by executives of Jewish communal service homes for the aged, discussing trends and considerations in the field. Among the topics discussed in the essays are: the necessity of distinguishing functions and roles of board, staff and administration; teamwork; adapting skills from other fields; relationship to other Jewish communal and social service agencies; and the individualization of the elderly resident's conception of life in the home -- i.e., the growing sense that residence in these institutions does not represent "the end" but rather "a new phase of life.
