Doing with Less: The Ethics of Diminshed Resources

By David S. Ribner

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1991

When demands for communal services or resources outstrip their supply, Jewish communal professionals face agonizing decisions about how to distribute the available resources in an equitable manner. This article examines some ethical guidelines found in classical Jewish texts that apply to the distribution of limited resources and contrasts them to contemporary explorations of this topic, particularly affirmative action.
