Child Care in Palestine

By Carl Frankenstein

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

Welfare in Jewish Palestine has always been characterized by its strong emphasis on childcare. The piece asserts that in order to understand this strong focus on childcare one must understand the variety of demographic, sociological, educational, and psychological factors of the whole scene of Jewish Palestine. The piece highlights the differences between European and Oriental Jewish communities and the respective needs that come with providing services to both communities. The piece concludes by affirming that the general trend of development in Jewish Palestinian child welfare work is towards the integration of all specialized services, some of which are already in operation and some of which have to be created or extended into comprehensive child family welfare projects.
