The author asserts that significant changes are taking place in the ways federations conceive of their role and responsibilities in relation to local services. He contends that these changes constitute a basic shift in federation thinking and subsequently have far-reaching effects on the nature and scope of Jewish communal services in the future. The author attributes this transition to two major forces: the influx of financial institutions in the United States and the continued perpetuation of humanitarian issues in the Middle East and Northern Africa.
