There is as yet no agreement as to the reality or desirability of trying to evolve a profession of Jewish communal service even as there is no clear cut acceptance of being a Jewish professional in Jewish communal service. This has great implications for the evolving roles of professionals. The degree to which knowledge, values and methods are identified and transmitted will establish the degree of power of suasion and direction the professionals will be able to provide to the American Jewish community.
