A review of data collected about the Jewish elderly as part of a recent community study shows how significantly the demographic characteristics of the Jewish elderly have changed in the past decades. We now have a generation of American-bornâ??and mostly Philadelphia bornâ?? Jewish elderly, rather than a generation of immigrants. Perhaps more important, we have greater diversity than ever before among the elderly themselves. No longer do the Jewish elderly seem to be a homogeneous groupâ??foreign born, Orthodox in practice, low income, and concentrated in just a few neighborhoodsâ??which was the general picture (with some important exceptions) in decades past. Today there is diversity within every one of these dimensions.
