Case Work and Jewish Education

By Yonata Feldman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1946

The author discusses the relationship between American Jews' attitudes towards their Judaism, Jewish culture and Jewish ritual, to their general emotional and psychological sense of self. He discusses a case illustration in which a preadolescent boy felt himself to be a girl, and was treated by the Jewish Board of Guardians. His successful completion of a Bar Mitzvah ceremony was critical in his adjustment to manhood, the author reports.
