By Jenny Brodsky, Yitschak Shnoor, Assaf Sharon, Yaron King, Shmuel Be'er

Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute, 2010

Commissioned by the Foundation for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims in Israel, the study focuses on the population of Holocaust survivors living in Israel today and future projections: their numbers, characteristics, situation and needs in social and healthcare spheres. This is in order to help the various organizations servicing the population to set policy, continue service development and determine priorities. In order to arrive at the findings, a number of sources of information were used, including surveys conducted by Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute (a survey of needs among the population of the Foundation for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims in Israel and their families and a survey of Holocaust survivors eligible for benefits under the Long-Term Care Insurance Law), interviews with professionals at long-term care institutions and a discussion forum with senior professionals caring for the elderly, particularly survivors. The National Health Survey of the Central Bureau of Statistics for 2003/4 was also used.
