This article shows how Ralph's approach was translated into practice by the Joint Distribution Committee in one aspect of its work in the former Soviet Union. The enterprise is broadly categorized as Jewish renewal; the specific aspect under consideration is the effort to create Jewish Community Centers as the flagship for this program.
