The St. Louis Jewish Young Adult Council

By Frank H. Newman

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

This piece describes the Jewish community of St. Louisâ??s creation of the Young Adult Council. The first project of the council was a community calendar of young adult activities which caught on immediately. A monthly publication of young adult news also became a community favorite. In less than six months after adoption of the constitution the council began to see ideas put into action. As the piece asserts the Young Adult Council in St. Louis is still too new for any conclusive observations to be made, however, it is affirmed that the council has given young adults experience and training opportunities for leadership.
