During the last decade, as certain sociological and demographic changes have come over the Jewish community, the central agencies for Jewish educaton have begun to confront new issues and problems. Some of these are philosophical in character, having to do with the aims and objectives of Bureaus; some are structural, in that they relate to the status of the Bureaus vis-a-vis either their Federations or other agencies within the Federation family; some are programmatic; and others, attitudinal. That is, associated with shifting perceptions people have of them and their shortcomings, which in my judgment are locked into the system in which Bureaus function.
