Employment Not Poverty

By Danny Pins

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), May 2003

The author asserts that among those most vulnerable to the effects of economic downturn are immigrant groups, and prominent among these are the Ethiopian-Israeli community, many of whom are in dire straits. The greatest challenge to the integration of any immigrant group is employment and economic self-sufficiency. Unless we intensify our efforts to help more Ethiopian-Israelis gain the employment skills they need, their poverty and life on the margins of the society that greeted them so eagerly will remain as a testament to our failure.
