Digests of resolutions adopted by the
Central Conference of American Rabbis
between 1889 and 1974

1. We repudiate the policy of false prosperity through armaments and endorse a policy of sound prosperity based on a program of housing, public works, conservation of national resources, expanded education and improved health services. (1938, p. 141)

2. We hope that the abolition of slums through federal housing aids will be continued. We urge that WPA, NYA and CCC, shall not be abandoned before their need is proven unnecessary. (1942, p. 97)
