Coordinated Planning for Economic Opportunities for Jewish Aged

By David Rabinowitz

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1959

This piece explores social planning for the Jewish aged in terms of access to economic opportunities. The piece uses the Social Agency Committee of the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland to illustrate the example of one program aimed at serving older persons who were in need of economic opportunities. The piece notes that the primary beneficiaries of this program were those who were able to work full time and already had some type of marketable skills and abilities. The piece concludes by asserting the importance of the direct service agency and the Federation in cooperating to plan economic opportunities for Jewish aged. Special emphasis is placed on mutual respect for the competence of each organization as well integrating each agency program into a whole network of community services.
