Agriculture, A Most Effective Means to Aid Jewish Poor

By Rabbi A.R. Levy

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), May 1902

Agriculture holds the key to the solution of the problems which confront the Jew in the Ghetto. The Jewish Agriculturists' Aid Society of America offers any Jew who spends two or three years on an American farm learning farm work and saving a little money assistance in establishing himself as a farmer. Although the movement to seed large communities in the country has been a failure, new families learning from established farmers, Jewish and non-Jewish, can one by one move from dependence to prosperity, and experience has shown that Jewish religious life does not suffer even without a community.
