Welfare and Child Care Needs of European Jewry

By Herman D. Stein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1949

When the war was over and relief could come to the European Jewry, it was towards the purpose of welfare that efforts were directed. The provision of food, clothing, shelter and money meant that tens of thousands of lives were saved. Relief dominated the picture, but from the beginning, it was recognized that this could not remain the major emphasis for the years ahead. However, current trends are moving towards improvement in the quality of care insofar as possible, despite limitations of budget and personnel, so that care and maintenance assistance assumes a more dynamic quality and plays a special role in the total rehabilitation process for European Jewry.
