Social Welfare in Israel

By Jona M. Rosenfeld, Abraham Doron

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1962

In the dozen years after its formation, Israel devoted significant time and resources to social welfare, resulting in a relatively high level of service and programs. However, social service programs remain mismanaged and underfunded because of "an irrational belief in an utopian society which will be socially and economically secure. As "dreams of its socialist future, it refuses to empower local agencies to attend to pressing social service needs. What is required is a more rational approach to the planning and administration of government services that recognizes and addresses the very real needs primarily of young, immigrant families.
