Patterns of Juvenile Delinquency Among Israeli Arabs

By David Reifen

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1965

The author describes patterns of juvenile delinquency among Israeli Arab youths. He outlines the changing social structures of Arab Israeli society, and notes that in stark contrast to Jewish Israelis, which is overwhelmingly urban, Arab juvenile delinquency is overwhelmingly rural. He describes common behaviors, compares statistics relating to case outcomes, and argues that the reason Arab populations show higher rates of punishment for delinquency has to do with differences in method employed by Arab and Jewish probation officers at pre-trial stages.
