A Study of Cultural Needs in Southern Illinois

By Morris J. Appelman

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

This piece covers the social and cultural needs of the Jews of Southern Illinois and the possible planning for programming to aid this community. The piece highlights how communities with very small Jewish populations and that are within a 50 to 60 mile-radius of each other, are combined into communal watersheds. The author finds that existing social, religious and recreational programs are very simple. He recommends activities that stimulate the growth of regular religious services as well as aiding existing organizations in planning cultural and social programs for their meetings.
