The "Synagogue Burglary Ring" ; A Case Story
The author presents the results of a case study in which his agency, the Jewish Board of Guardians (New York), investigated the lives of seven Brooklyn Jewish youths of Orthodox backgrounds who were arrested in December 1965 for a series of burglaries targeting the Jewish community. The author discusses his agency's determinations regarding the boys' immigrant family backgrounds, their low socioeconomic status, their relationships with parents and religious school authorities, and social issues facing their neighborhood in general. This Jewish immigrant neighborhood in Brooklyn, the author observes, faces social problems similar to those of the Lower East Side during the 1920s and '30s.
