Eliezer David Jaffe is an Israeli sociologist and advocate of philanthropy. He is Professor Emeritus at The Hebrew University's Paul Baerwald School of Social Work and Social Welfare. Jaffe initially came to Israel from the United States in 1957 as a volunteer in the Talpiot immigrant transient camp (ma'abara) in Jerusalem. He returned to the USA to complete his education, obtaining degrees in sociology, psychology, and criminology, and a doctorate in social work, and then he immigrated to Israel in 1960 to be one of the founders of Israel's first university school of social work, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has been a consultant to the Israel Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs and has served on several ministerial committees, including the Prime Minister's Committee on Children and Disadvantaged Youth (under Golda Meir), the Prime Minister's Council on Social Welfare Policy (under Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Shamir), the President's Committee on Outstanding Volunteers (under Chaim Herzog), and the Committee to Determine Israel's Poverty Line(under Menachem Begin).show more
