   Rehabilitation of Released Prisoners

   in the   Kibbutz:

   From Isolation to Segregation


   EFRAT SHOHAM
   URI TIMOR

   ABSTRACT The present research examines 110 released prisoners who
   were sent for rehabilitation to the Kibbutz Movement by the Israeli Prisoner
   Rehabilitation Service between 1983 and 2001. The research examines sev-
   eral measures of their adjustment towards normative life during and after
   their stay at the kibbutz. The research was based on interviews with each of
   the offender's adoptive families and with the released prisoners themselves.
   Program participant's reincarceration rate was 22.7%, which is much lower
   than the 63% reincarceration rate in the general population of released pris-
   oners in Israel. Findings show that the most significant predictors of success-
   ful rehabilitation were length of stay in the kibbutz, work and social
   integration, and adherence to kibbutz norms. doi: 10. 1300/JO76v44n01_01 [Ar-
