COMMUNAL AFFAIRS: Ingredients for a program en-
visaging major advances in the quality and effectiveness of
services rendered to the Jewish community are contained
in recommendations adopted by the National Conference of
Jewish Communal Service, the central body of Jewish
Its full implementation would take perhaps three years,
but immediate action is proposed. Experimental pilot proj-
ects will be established in the interim. Intensive interpreta-
tion work will be started, beginning with national agencies
and the executives of Jewish federations.
The predominant emphasis of the implementation pro-
cess, at this initial stage, is laid upon the Jewish social
workers. A questionnaire has been mailed by the NCJCS to
about 2,400 of them soliciting their opinions on the structure
and operation of Jewish communal organizations. Not all of
them answered, but among those who did answer, there was
dissatisfaction of a cross-sectional majority with the present
structure. functioning and priorities of the organized Jewish
The dissatisfaction was primarily due to the belief that
the present priorities of the organized Jewish communities,
as well as the mode of their operation and leadership struc-
ture are not effectively promoting Jewish survival and
adequately providing for Jewish education and for social
LAY-PROFESSIONAL DIFFERENCES: The difference
between the present priorities and those preferred by a
majority of the respondent social workers is considered
essentially a conflict between lay and professional priorities.
It raises by itself questions concerning the role of communal
workers vis-a-vis lay leaders in the priority-setting process.
In a memorandum to its members, the National confer-
ence of Jewish Communal Service urges the planning of
lay - professional colloquia around issues of concern to
the American Jewish community and the relationships be-
tween lay and professional personnel. It also suggests con-
ferring with rabbinical bodies to establish liaison with them
in their role as .communal workers. It recommends to its
members to involve more grass roots participation in defin-
ing communal problems and goals.

DIVISION ON PRIORITIES: The opinion survey among
the Jewish communal workers brought out an overwhelming
agreement of the respondents that the four top priorities are
presently—and should continue to be—fund-raising for
American Jewish agencies and causes, fund-raising for
Israel, Jewish education, and social services. However, con-
siderable differences were expressed in the survey as to
how these four priorities should be ranked.
Most respondents questioned the present top priority for
fund-raising for Israel. They preferred first place for Jewish
education and social services.
The most frequent suggestion on improving this process
was to broaden participation beyond the "big givers." A sub-
stantial number of respondents suggested that the process
would be improved if communal workers were more involved
in 'it. They also suggested more involvement of communal
workers in the leadership structure of the communities.
Other frequent suggestions were: 1. the broadening of
participation in Jewish communal affairs in general to
include intellectuals; 2. more Jewish education; and 3.
more unification 'in the Jewish community to cope with
