Ncrac and Council of Federations Develop Plan to Foster Community Programs

Download PDF for this date

A six-point program designed to assist Jewish communities in organizing and developing public relations activities has been adopted by the Committee on Community Consultation of the National Community Relations Advisory Council, it was announced today.

Under this program the NCRAC will endeavor to inform local communities of the facilities available to them through all national agencies and, upon request made to the NCRAC, will undertake an investigation to determine the structure and type of public relations program which is deemed best suited to the needs of the particular community.

This service will be made available to all Jewish communities in the United States whether or not they are affiliated with the NCRAC. David Sher, chairman of the organization, announced that an agreement had been reached between the NCRAC Committee on Community Consultation and the Committee on Local Community Organization of the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds through which it is hoped that the new service will be made more readily available to all communities seeking assistance in the public relations field.
