The Insidious Threats of Hunger and Poverty to Israel's Future

By Peter Edelman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), May 2003

The author discusses poverty in Israel, characterized by the combination of the Intifada, the conservative government it caused to be elected, unemployment, child poverty and hunger. Given this, he calls into question the claim that equality is a fundamental principle in Israel. He concludes that Israel must act: either the social, political and economic conditions will be made better or they will deteriorate.
