By Morris Zelditch

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

This author considers the possibilities for social action by Jewish social work agencies over and beyond their primary function in serving clients. The piece also looks at the relation of Jewish social work agencies to social action especially in terms of the way it may affect progressive social legislation. The author asserts that social action is desired by Jewish social agencies and that it can be effective. The piece concludes by outlining guiding principles for social action by social agencies to further their cause.
