A senior official of the Welfare Ministry has proposed a recruitment drive among laid-off social workers in New York City to fill Israel’s need for another 500 professional social workers to carry out the country’s minimum social welfare programs. The official said a thorough campaign by the Ministry might convince many victims of New York’s fiscal crisis to seek their professional future in Israel. A recent survey conducted by the Welfare Ministry disclosed an increasing gap between the number of university graduates in social work and the demand for their services.
