The Agricultural Counsellor

By Gabriel Davidson

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

This piece explores the efforts of the Jewish Agricultural Society to help farmers. To meet the needs of Jewish farmers, the society inaugurated a system of services, which in time came to take in virtually every phase of farming and every aspect of farm life. The chief educational instrument is the individual visit, possible only in the more populous Jewish farm districts, whereby instruction is carried directly to the client on the farm by travelling teachers picked for their scientific training, their pedagogic ability, their temperamental fitness and their Jewish background.
