Discussion of Mr. Lerner's Paper

By Samuel Grand

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

The author responds to Samuel Lerner's "The Meaning of Jewishness to Clients and Its Effect on Case Work Service," and to George W. Rabinoff's response to the same paper, which appears directly before this article in this issue of the journal. The author agrees with Rabinoff and Lerner that more research is necessary to clarify this issue, but cautions that research cannot provide all the answers when dealing with Jewish cultural factors; the practitioners who perform the day-to-day work of Jewish communal service can provide perspective which research cannot.
