Child Welfare in Israel: An Overview of Institution Care, Foster Home Care and Adoption

By Eliezer D. Jaffe

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1978

The author reviews contemporary issues, programs and research regarding Israeli child welfare, particularly institutional care, foster care and adoption services. Israelis historically relied heavily on institutional settings for child care, the author asserts, because of Zionism's ideological affinity for group education. More recent trends show a decrease in the use of institutions in favor of a broader range of social services based in the local community and in regional centers. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.55 no.2, Winter 1978.
