A this applies to protestants catholics jews and political paries. A a however because Hadassah and the Council of jewish women were already affiliated with the District and so the bylaw did not apply to them.

Social services complains Agency can t find any jewish Foster Homes for the past seven years the Indianapolis jewish social services have not used the Home of a jewish family for its Foster children. According to Jacob c. Guthartz executive director of the services there Are several reasons for this. A jewish families do not like to serve As Foster parents because of what he described As their Quot traditional regard for this makes it difficult and psychologically upsetting when they Are separated from the child later a the jewish Community is Middle class with Middle class values which Isnit geared to give and get nothing in return. Or Guthartz explained a it takes an unusual couple who Are wiling to give of themselves for a Short period of time a ranging from one month to two years. A they must always have the thought in mind that the child will one Day be taken away from them to be placed for adoption with another couple. Furthermore he pointed out the financial Reward of $45 a month was of no consequence to a Middle class family. A a however to families in the lower economic group he said it provides some inducement to take upon itself the amount of responsibility required.

Guthartz executive director ass Mother shortly after birth. He asserted that the abandonment of the child by jewish Mother was a a rarity in jewish a we have four or five Good Homes of non jewish families that have been studied by another Agency and that Are licensed by the state a he added. Or. Guthartz said that there were occasions when a jewish family was needed As Foster parents because of the age of the child and the importance of social and religious background. A however in some instances it would not be preferable to place a Foster child in a jewish Home because the smallness of the Community would not provide an anonymity.
