Report on Jewish Poverty

By Jacob B. Ukeles, David A. Grossman

Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty, UJA-Federation of New York, January 2004

This report from the UJA-Federation of New York and the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty is based on data collected in UJA-Federation's Jewish Community Study of New York: 2002. The report finds that almost a quarter of a million people live in Jewish households with incomes under 150% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. These 244,000 poor people represent 15% of the 1.66 million people in all Jewish households in the New York area. In addition there are 104,000 near-poor living in Jewish households in the eight-county New York area with incomes only modestly above the poverty line.
