Jewish Social Work and Social and Economic Trends

By Joseph H. Levy

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

This piece explores economic and social trends in the Jewish social work field. The author highlights the weakening organizational position of labor among white-collar workers as well the role of the Taft-Harley in furthering this weakness. The author also describes how the New Deal legislation has been undermined by Congress, which has been deeply affecting the work of labor, a close ally of social workers. The piece concludes by asserting that Jews can play an more important part in the future by aiding Jewish people in their efforts to fight for democracy of all American people.
