Din Torah As A Case Work Tool

By Harold Silver

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, December 1935

The author describes a scenario in which a din Torah (rabbinical court case) was used as a case work tool, in context of a clientele which accepted the authority of this form of traditional religious court. While social workers generally acknowledge the importance of being aware of clients' customs and folkways, the author notes that case workers rarely make constructive and proactive use of them, as was done in this case.
