Legitimizing After-care for Institutionalized Adult Offenders in Israel

By Lester D. Jaffe

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1963

Israel is one of only a few Western-oriented countries without government after-care programs for rehabilitating prisoners after release and reentry into society, the authors note. Members of the Israeli Prison Service, however, have reached out on an ad hoc basis to prisoners and families in an effort to fill this void. The authors suggest that Israel ought to initiate a parole program, and generally legitimize prison after-care services on a national basis. They examine several case examples from the records of prison social workers to illustrate the tasks, problems and potential of these rehabilitation services.
