The Jewish Poor; Who are They? Are We Helping Them Enough?

By Benjamin R. Sprafkin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1973

Though Jewish social service agencies do serve the poor, the author asserts, they have failed to see Jewish poverty as an important communal problem. Examining the Jewish poor in the caseload of his agency, Jewish Family Service of Philadelphia, the author attempts to generalize the demography and segmentation of the Jewish poor of North America.
