The Community Center and Social Group Work in Israel
By Morris Levin
This article explores the emerging role of social group work in Israel. The piece identifies that interest in the social service field has been growing especially when it comes to work with community organizations, the aged and child placement among other important areas. The piece affirms that at the time of its writing community centers in the inclusive sense did not exist but efforts by the Ministry of Education to expand community centers were moving quickly. Noted problems in this area include scarcity of funds and lack of personnel to lead and carry out services. Other identified problems include the divide between the various Jewish ethnic groups. The piece concludes by supporting the value of social group work by relating its successes and benefits in the United States to the positive future it can have in Israel.
