Comment: "The Invisible Jewish Poor"
By Saul Kaplan
In spring 1971, Ann Wolfe published an article in the Journal of Jewish Communal Service entitled "The Invisible Jewish Poor," in which she highlighted the startlingly high number of Jewish poor in the United States and issues a call for action. Saul Kaplan and James Rice challenge this article's conclusion about the prevalence of Jewish poor and contend that more is being done than Wolfe recognizes. Wolfe responds to Kaplan and Rice with a vigorous defense of her methods and conclusions, calling into question their own methods and motives and restating her pressing questions regarding the Jewish poor, about control of money, process of appropriation, and the attention paid by the Jewish community to its own poor.
