Housing Pensioners

By Louis H. Levin, Lee K. Frankel

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1, 1913

Two Jewish communal leaders discuss why they would not support creating special housing for Jews, especially widows and their families, who rely on government pensions for their livelihood, including the concern that these housing units would become known as charity housing which would subject these women and their children to ridicule, and the fear that it could both serve and encourage dependence and irresponsibility. In Bulletin of the National Conference of Jewish Charities 1913-1914, Baltimore, Vol.IV:5, ed. Lee F. Frankel.
