Community Relations, Trends and Challenges in 1950

By Maurice B. Fagan

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1950

The author compares major trends and concerns in the Jewish community relations field from the 1940s to new trends and concerns as they appear at the beginning of the 1950s. He notes that racist and antisemitic attacks in the 1940s were often overt and organized, whereas in the 1950s these movements are increasingly non-explicit, while remaining dangerous. He further discusses new types of partnership across racial, religious and political divides.
