By Ira M. Sheskin

Florida Society of Geographers, 2001

While many issues that face elderly gentile Floridians also are faced by its Jewish elderly, social service providers, particularly those in areas of heavy Jewish concentration, would be well served to be aware of some of the distinct characteristics of elderly Jews. This article suggests that Jewish elderly will be much less of a burden on the social service network than other elderly groups.
