Jewish Health Migration

By Frank F. Furstenberg

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

This piece considers the issue of Jewish health migration. The author argues that medical care for migrants can be problematic and questions arise as to whether the exodus to the Southwest has any medical validity. He also explores who bears the responsibility for the medical care of Jews and concludes by asserting that Jewish social planning will need to stand at the forefront of addressing these issues.
