Minister of Welfare

By Jonathan Gillis

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), May 2008

Gillis, writing as if he were the Israeli minister of welfare, argues that the ministry should reassess current norms, seeking to enable all people to care for themselves and have control over their own lives. This would change the role of the ministry, moving away from its current role as the distributor of funds, to programs it dictates are the means by which such needs are to be addressed.
