The History of Child Placement in the Land of Israel During the Mandate

By Anita Weiner

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1980

The author examines the methods of child welfare service provision in the Yishuv, the Zionist community in the land of Israel during the pre-state British Mandate. She explains that Zionist ideology led child welfare workers to devalue family continuity in an effort to break with child-rearing norms of the past, and asserts that this was probably not the best solution for the overall well-being of the children concerned. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.56 no.4, Summer 1980.
