Career Services for Near Poor Haredi and Immigrant Jews in New York City

Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty, June 2007

In September 2006, Met Council commissioned a team of graduate students to look deeper into the issue of Jewish near poverty in New York City raised in the 2005 Jewish Near Poverty report. The report indicated 4 priority areas for this population: housing, healthcare, counseling, and employment services. After conducting extensive site visits at pre-selected JCCs, and analyzing that data in light of the 2005 report, the Team decided to focus its efforts on career services among the Haredi and Jewish immigrant working age population in Flatbush, Queens, Williamsburg, Bensonhurst, and Boro Park.
