Recent Personnel Trends in Jewish Community Organization

By Alfred H. Katz

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1949

Personnel at Jewish community organizations are experiencing a variety of changes. Less than half of the organized communities in the United States and Canada, or some 125, at present have full-time professional executives. The number of the latter has grown markedly in the last decade and continues to grow steadily, in reflection of the communities' conviction that professionals have much to offer them in carrying out the manifold responsibilities of their central organizations. But while a relatively large expansion has taken place in the field in recent years, particularly in the smaller communities and at the lower level of job opportunities, it is important to note that the field is not a large one. Despite the growing amount of responsibilities, arduous task and slow progress that may accompany the growth in the field, professionals continue to find personal and professional satisfaction.
