The author reviews contemporary issues, programs and research regarding Israeli child welfare, particularly institutional care, foster care and adoption services. Israelis historically relied heavily on institutional settings for child care, the author asserts, because of Zionism's ideological affinity for group education. More recent trends show a decrease in the use of institutions in favor of a broader range of social services based in the local community and in regional centers.
