Bringing the Poor Back In: Jewish Poverty in Education for Jewish Communal Service

By Chaim I. Waxman

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), World Zionist Organization (WZO), 1979

The author discusses the extent of Jewish poverty in the United States and laments the lack of engagement with the problem on the part of Jewish social work education programs. He examines five such graduate level programs: the Wurzweiler School of Social Work at Yeshiva University; the School of Jewish Communal Service of Hebrew Union College- Jewish Institute of Religion, (California school); the Benjamin S. Hornstein Program in Jewish Communal Service at Brandeis University; the Baltimore Institute for Jewish Communal Service at Baltimore Hebrew College; and the Program in Jewish Communal Service of the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland.
