Jewish Education in a Foster Home Agency

By William Posner

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1946

The author describes the process undertaken by his agency, Jewish Child Care Association of New York, to clarify its position regarding Jewish education for children it places in foster care. While affirming that Jewish educational choices were the responsibility and prerogative of parents and foster families, the agency began to ensure that parents and foster parents were aware that Jewish educational resources were available if desired. As a result, a survey showed the agency's clientele made more use of these resources than previously.
