About the project

The Josephtal Institute Jerusalem Laboratory was a social work institute led by and later named in memory of Louis D. Horwitz of Hebrew University’s Paul Baerwald School of Social Work & Social Welfare. The Jerusalem Foundation supported social welfare and community service projects that involved research, counseling and program development for young children, adolescent girls, high school youth, young mothers and the elderly, in areas including employment, immigrant absorption and drug use. Much of the work resulted in programs that took place at schools and community centers, including the Ort Kennedy Apprenticeship Center, Beit Elisheva, the Evelina de Rothschild School, the Scheuer-Bressler Youth & Community Center and the Fred & Greata Pomerantz Youth & Community Center.
