The Community Executive in a Small City Setting

By David Zeff

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

Addressing the unique situations of executive leaders of central organizations of small Jewish communities, the author notes that the small Jewish community is not simply the large Jewish community in miniature. Rather, he explains, its size, its geographic separation, and its lack of resources have all tended to affect the degree and quality of the individual's participation in the Jewish life of his community. The author argues that it is to the professionally uncharted uniqueness of the small Jewish community that the executive must relate, bringing a mastery of as many as possible of the tools of the trained social worker.
