Since the turn of the century, Jewish Homes have been the primary source of service to the Jewish elderly, and since the 1930s, they have given leadership in providing community- based services as well. Today, because of the dramatic increases in the number of aged Jews, these services have never been needed more urgently, but cutbacks in govemment funding and shifts in federation priorities place them at risk. Federations and Homes need to re-examine their missions and values with the aim of encouraging support on a nationwide basis for programs serving the elderly. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.72 no.1-2, Fall/Winter 1995/1996.
