The Jewish Hospital and the Jewish Community

By William Kavesh

Response, Winter 1972

While the Jewish communities ability to fundraise is both famous and satirized in general culture, the fact is that very few people have a real idea what Federations, the community's primary fundraising instrument, do. The large percentage of funds from Federations that go to Jewish hospitals, and the fact that this large expenditure covers only a small percentage of hospital costs, has led to a need to re-evaluate the priorities of money in the Jewish community.
