Detailed Description of the Records

Subcollection:

Countries and Regions

Extent: 371 files

 

The Countries and Regions subcollection details JDC’s global humanitarian efforts in 53 countries and regions from 1965-1974. The files contain extensive field reports from JDC country directors, memos, and correspondence which document JDC’s global relief activities around the world.
During this period, JDC’s work in Israel focused on developing innovative models to stimulate social change and community action throughout Israel’s health, education, and welfare sectors. Its oversight and funding of MALBEN, an extensive network of institutions and social services founded by JDC in 1949 to address the needs of handicapped, elderly, and chronically ill populations, was gradually transferred to the Israeli government. This transition was formally completed in 1975. JDC also worked closely with the Israeli voluntary agencies that served populations with physical and mental disabilities to create therapy programs, counseling services, community centers, and summer camps.

In 1969, JDC and the Israeli government founded ESHEL—the Association for the Planning and Development of Services for the Aged—to coordinate resources and services for under-served elderly on the local, regional, and national levels. A few years later, in 1974, JDC and the Israeli government partnered again to establish the Brookdale Institute of Gerontology and Adult Human Development (which later became the Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute) to promote the use of research, evaluation, and institutional planning to improve Israel’s social service system.

In Europe, JDC helped establish and fund the European Council of Jewish Communities, a network of European Jewish communities and institutions, in 1968. In North Africa, where the Jewish communities in Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, and Egypt continued to diminish in size, JDC remained active, funding educational institutions and public health services. In France, JDC provided substantial planning and financial support to the French Jewish community in its efforts to absorb waves of North African refugees fleeing political instability.
Across the globe, JDC continued to support loan institutions in Australia, Europe, Israel, South America, and elsewhere to enable Jewish refugees and Holocaust survivors to reestablish themselves. JDC’s Cold War expulsions from the Soviet satellite countries placed most of Eastern European Jewry out of direct reach. However, Yugoslavia never expelled JDC, and in 1958, the Polish government invited JDC to return primarily to care for Jews repatriated from the Soviet Union, only to expel it once again in 1967 following the Six-Day War. In March 1967, the Romanian government invited JDC to resume operations, which enabled JDC to sustain thousands of destitute Holocaust survivors, who were left behind when the majority of Romania’s able-bodied Jews were allowed to make aliyah to Israel.
Please note that the names of some localities reflect the contemporary usage when these records were created.
