Jewish Health Migration

By Morris Zelditch

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1947

The attempts of local social work organizations to deal with the problems of migrating people when these impinge on them, have had some constructive effect in individual cases but can hardly be said to constitute a basic frontal attack upon the problem. The transients who do come to the attention of Jewish agencies today are for the most part those who are seeking better opportunities for improvement of their economic, social or health conditions. This piece seems to look the demographics at this population as well as questioning how to plan for the population.
