An American Social Worker in Israel

By Louis H. Sobel

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1950

The author relates his impressions of the new State of Israel's social welfare scene, based on observations made during a month's travel there. He discusses continuities between current Israeli government work and its predecessors in pre-state Zionist organizations, identifies common needs and groups in need, touches upon the work of the School of Social Work in Jerusalem, and a special organization dedicated to dealing with "hard-core" cases suffering from debilitating physical and mental illnesses.
