Jewish communal programs can be classified and evaluated according to a system using the three parameters of program objectives, type of clientele, and degree of continuity. This system is useful not only in evaluating a program at one point in time but also in indicating the changes that it undergoes over time. This system has been in use since 1976 in the Israel Association of Jewish Centers.
