Jewish Poverty in the New York Suburbs
Ten years ago the Nova Institute prepared a pioneering study for the Metropolitan Coordinating Council, entitled "The Low Income Jewish Population of New York City." That study had an enormous impact on the way in which the UJA-Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of New York City and its human and health services affiliates, as well as many departments and agencies of the City of New York, the State of New York and the Federal Government perceived the problems of poor Jews in New York City. It is our intention to utilize the current study to examine and update many of the same key elements of information and to extend the analysis to three suburban counties that surround New York City. We want to use this report to achieve three fundamental objectives: 1) To provide an overview of the statistical and geographic facts about the Jewish poor of the New York suburbs; 2) To place the Jewish poor in the context of all poverty in the suburbs; 3) To identify the specific characteristics and special needs of the Jewish poor.
The original report is available here.
