Unemployment Assistance During the Period of the Yishuv: Philanthropy, Productivity and Mutual Aid

By Ruben Schindler

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1977

The author examines the roots of the modern State of Israel's system of unemployment insurance, which can be found, the author asserts, in a program called Mishan dating back to the 1920s Yishuv (pre-State Jewish infrastructure). Mishan began as a loan fund, but as economic conditions worsened in the Yishuv, the program began providing further forms of social assistance. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, ed. by Sanford Sherman, v.53, no.4, June 1977, p.356-361.
