The Social Work Establishment and Social Change in Israel

This paper discusses the limited impact and lack of power that Israeli public welfare agencies, professional organizations, and schools of social work possess for influencing social welfare policy and changing the welfare system. Among the reasons suggested for this are social workers’ basic attitudes toward and lack of commitment to the need for change.

Manpower Supply and Admissions Policy in Israeli Social Work Education

In my view, it is essential to “loosen-up” traditional social work education methods, copied for the most part from American social work education models of the 1950’s and early 1960’s. Above all, I believe that it is essential to undertake meaningful experimentation in Israeli social work education. We cannot afford, neither morally professionally, or economically, to let social work needs and daily practice develop in one corner of our society, and social work education in another.

Salvation Army

While experts argue over whether Israel’s half a million volunteers are letting the government off the hook, that debate is irrelevant in places like B’nei Brak. Here, charity work is seen as a divine imperative, and everybody knows that the city couldn’t survive without it.

The Squatters

They say they can’t wait any longer for proper housing. They can’t see how they can ever afford to buy in on the skyrocketing property market. They’re tired of bureaucratic promises and arbitrary assistance schemes. So in desperation they simply search out an empty flat and move in. They are the squatters, and HAIM SHAPIRO tells their story.
