Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA)


The federation movement and the professionalization of services to the North American Jewish community arose and evolved in concert over the past century. Both phenomena are historically linked and functionally interdependent. The Jewish Communal Service Association serves as the professional address of the Jewish community, playing a leadership role in defining and addressing the communal Jewish agenda and enhancing professional competence in the development and delivery of services. It has reversed a recent decline in membership through outreach to a variety of professional entities and the development of a mechanism to enable cross-field consultations among leading agency executives. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.72 no.1-2, Fall/Winter 1995/1996.
