Family Agency Services to Prospective Youthful Emigrants to Israel

By Benjamin R. Sprafkin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1972

A young person's decision to emigrate to Israel could be motivated by sincere ideological beliefs or by the impulsive desire to move away from her family. Because this decision is such a serious one, the author advocates for a strong connection between Youth Aliyah and Jewish Family Services that will provide opportunities for any necessary counseling of teenagers considering emigration and their families. It benefits noone, including Israel, for unprepared youth to move to the Jewish state, and proper counseling can help prevent decisions that might be harmful to teenagers and their families.
