But on the basis of trends in development of the american jewish Community and the Basic foundation we have established we can offer some clues As to what we can do and must do to unite the american jewish Community As an organic unit working together to meet common needs and to solve common problems. Obviously american jewry is bound to overseas jewry especially Palestine by a thousand threads economic spiritual and cultural. This firm relationship will continue and expand. But essentially american jewry is an inextricable and indigenous part of american society. Therefore future development of american society will be a decisive determinant of the problems we will face and the methods we will use for the meeting of common needs and achieving common goals. A continuation of Prosperity and the rights of individuals and groups As guaranteed under the Bill of rights will enable the jewish Community to develop its communal institutions and its spiritual and cultural life on a steady ascending plane. Less fortunate circumstances both economically and politically will pose a set of problems which will require new resources and organization forms. That these Ark not academic matters is illustrated by american jewry s increasing concern with the problem of equal rights Freedom of development and Freedom of Opportunity. During the past three years the Indianapolis jewish Community has been engaged in an intensive process of examining its Community organization Structure its institutional needs and its general services for the strengthening of communal life. Lets examine some of the trends. The Early immigrants to America starting in pre revolutionary Days and up to about 1870, had to adjust to a simpler More flexible american scene. The synagogue was the major institution and All services including education of the Young material assistance and recreational life stemmed naturally from the Community s major institution or even from a feeling of neighbourly responsibility. The vast and drastic change came about in the communal life and its organizational services with the enormous Waves of immigration Between 1870 and 1914 and the simplicity of the communal organization broke Down under the Impact of millions of poverty stricken immigrants from Eastern Europe. Small Independent Relief societies gave Way to More organized communal efforts. Innumerable settlement houses arose in the Large cities to help integrate the immigrants into the new society. Problems became so vast that haphazard methods of financing these services no longer were feasible and by the turn of the Century federations of agencies and Central methods of financing began to take Root. First they had Only a vague understanding of Overall Community planning. The Sharp cleavages Between various jewish groups made a total concept of the Community almost impossible at the time. Second federations were convenient devices on the part of the wealthy members of the Community to streamline their fund raising for the depressed unfortunate groups. It was a charitable movement in a very narrow sense and it was not viewed As a Community coming together to solve common problems. Following the first world War immigration became relatively stable and the patterns of Community life began to emerge in a clearer outline. The immigrant groups obtained a foothold on the economic scene and pressed for inclusion in policy making. But equally important was the emergence of the new science of human relationships modern psychiatry. The whole concept of helping the individual of group behaviour underwent a drastic change. Relief societies gave Way to jewish social service bureaus which dealt with a variety of problems of human relationships. The settlement houses gave Way to the jewish Center. The care of children and aged entered a period of rapid change and we saw the first emergence of Central planning for jewish education and the dissatisfaction with the old cheer and Melamed. The Rise of fascism in Europe which finally culminated in the destruction of six million jews in creased its demands upon american jewry for financial assistance. The old method of a few wealthy men getting together to contribute for the More important needs did not answer the needs of the Day and wider participation of All sections of american jewry was imperative. In other words a concerted acting together As a Community was necessary if the new problems were to be solved. With this broadening of the fund raising base came a clamor for greater participation in communal life by All groups. The interweaving of these various trends a broader participation from All groups in the Community the development of the new science of human relationships the stabilization of the american jewish Community finally evolved these concepts 1. That our services Case work group work jewish education care of the aged and children Are problems common to All people and therefore must be broadened to include a service to All sections of the Community. Tha new concept is All jews working together to help themselves and one another. 2. That there is an interrelationship Between All services and meeting of the Community s needs cannot be done on a haphazard basis. 3. That in the organization financing and planning process All groups must participate for their own Good. 4. That jewish needs Are indivisible and there is a close reciprocal relationship Between overseas jewry and american jewry. 5. That if the solution of jewish problems can be done Only on an All inclusive basis then the Central organization and planning must gain strength. 6. That the complicated nature of the new Community framework makes r mandatory that its services be staffed by Well equipped expertly trained communal servants. Projecting these general trends into the future we can look Forward to a period of greater intensification of Central Community organization the broadening of services within this framework on the part of constituent agencies for services to All people and the bringing together of these services group work Case work jewish education a Community relations care of the aged and children for rational planning for desirable objectives
