A new organizational structure needs to be created for federations that redefines the relationship between a changing fund-raising system and an outdated planning and allocations system. Human resource development and Jewish continuity must be replaced with the building of Jewish identity and the Jewish growth of individuals. Simply maintaining the system will result in an organization that is unresponsive to community needs and vision.
