1-6 Jewish Family Service


Community sponsored support for Jews in need began in New Haven
in 1881 when the Hebrew Benevolent Society was organized. Soon after, in
1906, lthe Hebrew Charity Society came into existence. [see Hyman Jacobs
Collection] These societies along with the Mishkan Israel Ladies Relief
Association merged on September 10, 1919 to form the United Jewish
Charities. In 1928 the United Jewish Charities changed its name to the Jewish
Welfare Society because the word ‘charity’ implied pauperism. Eleven years
later in 1939 the name was changed to Jewish Family Service [J.F.S.].
The Jewish Family Service was a more appropriate label because the
Department of Public Charities of New Haven had in 1934 taken over the relief
work which had been done by the Jewish Welfare Society. Families and
individuals who sought help from the agency had psychological and personal
difficulties to resolve. Trained social workers were needed and they were added
to the staff.
Isidore Offenbach (see tapes) became the Executive Director of the
Jewish Welfare Society on January 27, 1936. Under his supervision a Foster
Home Care Program for children came into being in 1937 and in 1938 the
Jewish Family Service cooperated with the Jewish Community Council to
organize the New Haven Committee For Aid to Emigrees. This group helped in
the resettlement of refugees from Nazi Europe. In 1942, the Jewish Family
Service absorbed the functions of the Committee For Aid to Emigrees. More
recently the Jewish Family Service has worked with several new waves of

immigrants, Hungarians and Russian Jews, helping them to adjust to American


life. Offenbach headed the Jewish Family Service for over thirty years retiring
in the late 1960’s. Through the years the work of the Jewish Family Service has
expended to include social services to the elderly, programs for youth, family
enrichment, adoption, volunteers and financial aid to those in emergency
situations.
