nvolvement in Social' Problems
Urged at Federation Staff Institute

Urging the involvement of both
Jewish individuals and Jewish
communal institutions in the tasks
of social reforms, Sidney Z. Vin-
cent, executive d i r e c tor of the
Jewish Community Federation of
Cleveland, said that "as turmoil
and unrest grows, no group is
secure."
Speaking to 90 workers ,at the
19th annual professional staff in-
stitute, at the Jewish Center
March 12, Vincent said that the
"crumbling of the social fabric
inevitably threatens all groups,
and particularly Jewish life and
continuity." He stated:
"For reasons of self-preserva-
tion, if not of altruism, the Jewish
community has a stake in a just
and functioning society."
"For centuries, our relation with
history was passive. We strove to
evade its bitter blows. Now we are
in history, helping to manipulate
it.
"It is not enough to motivate
individual Jews for social action,
the Jewish community, as a cora-

munity must be involved, and
if a sense of balance and judg-
ment is preserved, such com-
munal involvement complements
rather than depletes the forces
working for Jewish survival."
He said that the increase in the
Cleveland Federation's involve-
ment with social tasks had not
"eroded our interest in 'Jewish'
problems, but had actually en-
larged support for specifically
Jewish purposes."
"I venture the guess that those
federations that have done the best
by their traditional Jewish func-
tions are precisely those that have
ventured into social problems and
are most identified with the total
community," Vincent added. Vin-
cent is current president of the
National Conference of Jewish
Communal Service.
William Avrunin, executive
vice-president of Detroit's Jewish
Welfare Federation, described
the programs of the Federation
and its member agencies which
relate to the economically de-
prived in the Jewish community
and the inner city.
He pointed out that there was a
role for Jews as individuals and a
responsibility for sectarian volun-
tary agencies as well as for the
organized Jewish community.
"We must not grasp at programs
for the sake of our 'image.' We
must exercise our ingenuity to find
our most effective usefulness in
dealing with the primary problems
of our society," Avrunin said.
Mrs. Eva Sonnenblick, Jewish
Home for Aged, was chairman of
the institute which is an annual
educational forum for professional
workers in Jewish agencies.
The planning committee in-
cluded Mrs. Esther Appelman,
Marvin Berman, Alan Gelfond,
Harold J. Dubin, David Hoptman,
Selma Lesser, Robert Tell and Dr.
Ben Yapko.
