Our agencies have been established to render specific service function in response to certain specific human needs. Those functions have not, up to now, included the specific mission of strengthening Jewish identity. That objective has been poorly served because it has been dragged in through the back door of agency function, as an appendage, instead of being recognized as a function of primary importance to the future of Jewish life in this country.
