The Vocational Education Outlook in Palestine

By Julia A. Dushkin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1948

In order to judge Jewish Palestine's likely future development in the field of vocational education as it embarks upon building its independent state, one must first examine the sociopolitical factors, which determined Palestine's economy before and since the Balfour Declaration. Vocational education experts urge that in the Jewish State a central authority be established to carefully examine the 35 vocational projects and schools now struggling on their own. They also suggest that an effort be made to eliminate duplicate services and to relate the remaining facilities to the visible industrial needs of the expected mass immigration Jewish specialist. Vocational goals can be achieved by supervising the training of Americans preparing to live in Palestine in addition to training Palestinians who currently live there, as well as suggesting curricula for the training of vocational teachers in in Palestine in addition to helping create vocational libraries in three centers (Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Haifa) and finding personal channels of service and identification with kindred fields in Israel.
