New Developments in Jewish Community Organization

By Herman M. Pekarsky

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1947

This piece highlights new developments in Jewish community organization. The author mentions the rise of communities as the focal point of awareness, in particular how they are becoming much more aware of the importance of a strong, effective, and responsive central community instrument. The author also notes that many of those whose first association with community activities has been on the fund-raising level, will soon be the leaders of local communities and will grow in their understanding not only of overseas needs but also of local problems and objectives. The piece concludes by asserting that Jewish communal organizations in the future will need to be more sensitive, responsive and attuned to the needs and aspirations of the community in order to be more effective.
