Building Community Networks in Israel: Theory, Planning and Implementation

By Eliezer Don-Yehiya

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1983

This paper describes and analyzes an Israeli governmental experience in restructuring its social services. It has long been claimed that the social workers in the local welfare bureaus are detached and alienated from their target populations. One of the programs developed as a counteraction had as an objective that social workers become an integral part of the social network of the neighborhood in which they are employed. This paper will examine the theory, planning and implementation processes of this program in regard to the social workers' role in the community's social networks. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, 59:4.
