The Homeless, a Jewish "Yes, but..."
Eugene Borowitz, November 29, 1991
Edward M. Gershfield discusses the Jewish response to homelessness. He looks to Jewish tradition for a helpful framework, but ultimately states that times are very different than that of the Talmud and Maimonides. Gershfield believes that the homeless are best served by support from institutions, and not from handouts on the street.
