Part of a series of six papers which serve as an introduction to the International Conference of Jewish Social Work which will be opened in New York on April 22 and continued at the Hotel Ambassador in Atlantic City on May 13 and 14, 1948. In this paper, the speaker, the former chief Rabbi of Berlin, provides briefs remarks on Jewish social service. He states that it is therefore a task to be envisaged and fulfilled that people to whose hearts the needs and hopes of this time, especially the social needs and hopes, appeal, get together and work together to become
conscious of great ideas and to clarify them for themselves and others. All depends on a beginning somewhere. What began at one point spreads its influence farther and farther. Everything
influences everyone; everything also influences all things.
