By Ben Lappin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1972

The author laments the lack of volunteerism in Israel the way it exists in the English-speaking world, and describes social, cultural and logisitcal factors that have led to a lack of a substantive volunteer sector in Israel. He describes the gaps which a system of volunteerism would fill, and steps that might be taken to foster the growth of one.
