The Impact of the Present Crisis on Jewish Social Services

By Nathan E. Cohen

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

The author explores implications of the ongoing Korean War (referred to in the article only non-specifically as "the present / ongoing crisis") for the field of Jewish social services in America. Among the implications: that high school students, aware of the impending draft, are leaving school early; that inflation is hurting those on fixed incomes; new job opportunities for women and the elderly will be created by increased military production; family separation problems will multiply; and the "hysteria" which often accompanies war will threaten civil rights and civil liberties.
