Journal of Jewish Communal Service

JCSA publishes the Journal of Jewish Communal Service, now celebrating over 80 years of continuous publication. The Journal 's articles are an excellent retrospective of the issues and concerns the Jewish community has faced during these decades.

But more than "just" an historical treasure chest, this is the journal of record and authority for Jewish communal leaders and documents the development of new trends and methodologies which enhance our work. The Journal is often used in university classrooms and for lay and professional seminars.

If you want to order a specific volume, please contact info@jcsana.org

If you would like to submit an article for peer review for possible publication in a forthcoming issue of the Journal, please read our
submission guidelines.
