The authors present the content and results of their survey of settlements and rabbis across the country, a preliminary investigation to determine in what communities work was being done in Jewish neighborhoods. The critical condition, needs, and aspirations of American Jewish communities, particularly urban centers and areas with high immigrant populations, are noted. A short discussion follows, including a reflection on the moral influence of the settlement.
