Abstract:

While we struggle with definitions as to who we are —Jewish Center professionals, Jewish communal professionals, social workers, educators, and so forth, one constant remains: That our primary purpose and indivisible commitment are to exercise whatever skills we possess, in whatever form our individuality determines, to help people feel greater confidence and joy as Jews with programs that illuminate learning, teach the beauty and balance of our values, savor the sanctity and sweetness of our Sabbath, invite the exhilarating celebration of our customs, and perhaps, most of all, communicate a faith that life has more meaning with every incremental act of Jewish living.
