The Jewish Aging: Problem Dimensions, Jewish Perspectives, and the Unique Role of the Family Agency

By David Zeff

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1976

The author attributes the health disparity for the elderly to the fact that the elderly are constitutionally not capable of "militant advocacy" on their own behalf. The family agency, the author contends, not only has the capacity, but also the responsibility to close the health gap, not only by providing direct services but also by representing the interests of the elderly to the general public. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, ed. by Sanford Sherman, v.53, no.1, September 1976, p.81-87.
