Ose: Pioneer of Jewish Health

By J. J. Golub

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, June 1938

The OSE, Society for the Protection of the Health of the Jewish Population, was founded by a group of Jewish doctors determined to improve the deplorable health conditions among the Jews of Eastern Europe and Russia. Within a few years, branches of the organization were established and helped Jewish refugees throughout World War I. The success of the organization was due in part to funds sent from America through the Joint Distribution Committee and the international network of OSE societies.
