The author of this report was commissioned by the American Jewish Committee to develop a policy analysis on the need for quality child care under Jewish auspices. She argues that if the Jewish community embraces a strategy of providing a range of services designed to support the family and its needs, these same families will in turn become sources of strength to the Jewish community. She explores the issue of child care in the Jewish community from three perspectives: 1) The Jewish community as funder and provider of child care services; 2) The Jewish community as employer; 3) The Jewish community in the public policy debate.
