Substitutes for Family: On the Development of Institutional Care for Dependent Children in Israel

By Eliezer D. Jaffe

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1967

The author examines the development of welfare services to children in Israel, and the growth of children's institutions in particular. He differentiates this development into four time periods: from 1800 to 1914; from 1914 to 1930; from 1930 to 1948; and from 1948 to 1965. Among the groups and phenomena discussed are orphan homes, the Palestine Orphan Committee, children's villages, Youth Aliyah, the Centre for Training Israeli Children, and the Vaad Leumi (National Committee).
