Fathers and Israeli Child Welfare Services

By Eliezer D. Jaffe

Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1985

This article examines the tendency to overlook the father as a client in the case of child welfare workers. The author recognizes this as a widespread phenomenon and examines the Israeli welfare system as a particular example. He cites many reasons for this trend, ranging from the organization and demographic make-up of the social work profession to stereotypes about fathers and a lack of knowledge about ethnic groups.
