Casework Services to Hebrew Day Schools

By Rosalind Edelstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1968

Starting in 1965, the Jewish Family and Child Service of Metropolitan Toronto sought partnerships with Orthodox day schools in the city. The case worker found acceptance in the schools by demonstrating her familiarity and comfort with Orthodoxy and her understanding of Orthodox educational methods. Having formed relationships with the staff, she was then able to work with needy children, many of whom were ill-equipped to be taught with other children of their age. By instituting a cultural education program, developing a sex education program, and forming relationships with parents, the case worker was able to provide needed support in these schools.
