In publishing it, the conference organizers aim to reinforce Jewish efforts to take an active role in combating poverty; provide a concrete set of policies to advocate that will be effective in reducing poverty and promoting self-sufficiency; and set out a specific list of action recommendations for agencies to follow in organizing and enhancing efforts in this field. Each section is presented by a different author. A schedule of the conference itself and conference endorsing organizations are presented at the end.
