The Significance for the Center of Community Organization Developments in Metropolitan Communities
The author reviews broad trends in the postwar American Jewish communal field, focusing on the greater centralization of community resources, planning and decision-making. He discusses the restructuring of the Jewish community agencies of Essex County, NJ, into a centralized Community Council, and the affects this had upon the Jewish Community Centers in the County, which became agencies fully under the authority of this council. He notes advantages of this arrangement for the center, such as uniform administration and management practices across all agencies, and smooth inter-agency relationships. He also notes disadvantages, such as the loss of autonomy. The author draws broader implications from this experience for other Jewish community centers.
