God Concepts and Community Structure

By David Eskenazi

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1983

This article looks at the disappearance of God within Jewish communal discourse and argues for the reintroduction of God concepts into the worldview of Jewish communal professionals. He calls for professionals to recognize their place in the Jewish tradition and their responsibility to bear witness to this tradition as a part of his or her job expectation. The Jewish worker ought to have enough self-comfort to guide, teach, learn, and encounter others. S/he makes his or her most profound contribution by being a role modelâ??essentially, an imitation of God. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, 59:3.
