What Does the Concept of Self-Help Mean to the Israeli Population?

By Adital Ben-Ari

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1997

Self-help organization is in its early stages of development in Israel. The purpose of the study described in this article is to deepen our understanding of a situation in which a concept that was developed within the context of one particular culture is transferred to a different culture. The most prevailing theme associated with the concept of self-help among the Israeli population was found to be problem solving regardless of any context, whether it be a group or individual, professional or non-professional. Participants also seemed to understand the concept in a literal way. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.74 no.1, Fall 1997.
