JERUSALEM — Educa-
tional Boarding Homes are
one solution to the current
problem of abused and neg-
lected children in Israel.
There are 11 of these
homes throughout Israel,
all sprung from the initial
vision of one woman, Recha
Freier, now 89, who founded
youth aliya in Germany in

INDOVVORKS

1933. It was she who started
the Institute for the Ag-
ricultural Training of De-
stitute Children, dedicated
to gathering street children
and sending them to kibut-
zim.
Today, 40 years later, the
institute has evolved into
children's boarding homes,
responsible for over 1,000
children of both sexes, age
5-14. These boys and girls
are Sabras, mostly of Orien-
tal origin, with parents who
grew up in Arab countries.
Children are referred
to these homes by social
workers, truant officers
and the courts. The
homes are budgeted to
provide food, clothing,
books, medical and
psychological help, live-
in housing for the chil-
dren and staff, adminis-
trative and managerial
supervision.
Orli is but one example of
work being accomplished by
the homes. At six years old,
she was led into the streets
by her father to beg. He
shaved her hair off. The
mother had 11 other chil-
dren and didn't care about
any of them. Sores erupted
on Orli's he d. The father
beat the child to make her
work.
Orli finally came to the
attention of social workers.
It took the courts to place
her in one of the educational
boarding homes. She was
terrified of the strange place
and the strangers around
her. She cried, sucked her
thumb, and wet her bed. She
wore a hat even when she
went to sleep, humiliated by
her baldness and her sores.
She had trouble in school,
with both learning prob-
lems and behavior prob-
lems.
The educational boarding
home is as close to a normal
home as is possible. It is al-
ways set in a quiet area,
close to a main town or city.
The houses resemble a
kibutz, arranged around a
grassy square. From out-
side, the homes are nothing
fancy. But there are colorful
murals on the walls and the
children themselves have
helped plant the grass and
flowers.
Nine to 11 children of
all ages (5-14) and both
sexes live together in one
apartment, three or four
to one room (boys and
girls separately). They
have their own combina-
tion living-dining-study
room, showers, sinks,
toilets. Their housepa-
rents, together with their
own children, live in ad-
jacent rooms. Five or six
such family nuclei form a
"home" comprised of 70
to 80 children.
There are such homes in
Ashkelon, Tivon, Petah
Tikva, Nahariya, Ness-
Tziona; two in Ashdod, and
four in Carmiel, which to-
gether constitutes a unique
"children's village."
The key to these educa-
tional boarding homes is
that they are not run in an
institutional manner. On

SWIVEL CHAIRS

f

the front porches of each
home are coat hooks and
shelves for shoes. No two
coats hung there are alike.
No two pairs of shoes. These
children do not wear uni-
forms, do not lose their iden-
tity.

The rooms are clean,
scrubbed, cared for; the
tables, chairs and shelves
scaled to child size. The
children take care of
their own homes. Their
pride in what they have is
apparent. In their bed-
rooms, the furniture is
simple but new and
colorful with the stress
on individuality.
