The Housing Crisis: Who Should Be Helped?

By Mordechai Liebling

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2009

The economy as a whole will not recover from a recession until the housing market becomes healthy. Jewish texts offer clear guidelines about how to confront today's economic crisis and how to use resources to renegotiate and sometimes subsidize mortgages. The strategic use of public funds today will cost the taxpayer far fewer dollars than allowing mass foreclosures.
