The author examines the methods of child welfare service provision in the Yishuv, the Zionist community in the land of Israel during the pre-state British Mandate. She explains that Zionist ideology led child welfare workers to devalue family continuity in an effort to break with child-rearing norms of the past, and asserts that this was probably not the best solution for the overall well-being of the children concerned.
