Sound professional training and continuing education for Jewish communal service must incorporate elements of Jewish political studies. By showing the connection between past and present Jewish experience and by relating both to issues of communal organization, process, and policy, Jewish political studies integrates the professional skill development and Jewish studies components of Jewish communal service training programs. Several contexts for incorporating Jewish political studies into graduate and continuing education programs are presented.
