This book focuses on the Hesed centers, a network of community multi-functional welfare service centers established in Jewish communities in the former Soviet Union subsequent to Perestroika and the socio-economic crisis that followed. The book is divided into four sections that outline and analyze the Hesed model. The book begins with an in-depth description of the Hesed centers, documenting and analyzing their background and development, and highlighting the theoretical model on which they were based. The second section focuses on Hesed's extensive utilization of volunteers through the examination of their socio-economic characteristics, motives, the incentives they received, and the various organizational aspects that enhance their work. The third part describes Hesed food and homecare services, the client's perspective on these services and the impact of the Hesed on their lives. Finally, Social Disaster as an Opportunity outlines the Hesed center's professional training program and examines the Hesed network as a learning organization. This book is a useful tool for students of community development, leaders and staff of international non-governmental organizations, and members of the human service profession.
