Jewish Education and Social Adjustment

By Herschel Alt

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1947

Agencies providing full care to Jewish children in institutions or foster homes must assume responsibility for Jewish as well as secular education. Both educators and child guidance workers are in general agreement about this obligation, irrespective of the particular points of view about the meaning of the continued existence of the Jewish people, which they may hold. However there is still a need to determine the inter-relationship between social adjustment and Jewish cultural factors. This piece clarifies the need for further research in this area, in addition to providing suggestions for much-needed specific projects in this area.
