Jewish Content in Child Placement

By William Posner

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1948

In the last few years Jewish child care agencies have begun to examine and evaluate their practices in the area of Jewish education for children under their care. This examination has been related not only to program and curriculum but, what is more important, to an analysis of the place of Jewish education in a Jewish child care agency. The specific area of Jewish education, of course, is related to the much larger question of how much Jewish content belongs in the case work activity of a Jewish social service agency, a controversial issue which goes back to the very origin of organized Jewish social work in this country. Such questions as: What is Jewish about Jewish social work? Is there such a thing as Jewish case work? have troubled many workers in the field right along. For the most part, the issue has never been faced squarely.
