The vision, purpose, and responsibilities of the federation role in Jewish education have changed dramatically over the past century, and accompanying these changes have been some tension and controversy. Today, federations play a strong leadership role in strengthening, enhancing, and funding the entire Jewish education infrastructure. Although generally the federation role has been as a resource rather than a program provider, this pattern seems to be changing as Jewish continuity assumes greater prominence on the communal agenda.
