The Conference of Jewish Communal Service: A Professional Profile

By Jonathan S. Woocher

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1986

The Conference of Jewish Communal Service is the largest professional Jewish organization in North America dealing with issues of social welfare, communal well-being, and professional concems relative to the entire field of Jewish communal service. As part of its work, the Commission, working through an Advisory Committee chaired by Donald Feldstein, conducted a survey of the membership of the Conference dealing with a wide variety of issues relating to the activities of the Conference and to other professional concerns. The survey questionnaire, designed largely by Daniel Mann and then-Conference Executive Director Matthew Penn was mailed in January 1982. Approximately 750 completed questionnaires were received by mid-March. These were transmitted to the Benjamin S. Homstein Program in Jewish Communal Service at Brandeis University, which was engaged by the Conference to conduct the data analysis and prepare a preliminary report on the findings. This preliminary report was presented to Conference numbers at the 1982 Annual Meeting of the Conference.
