Resolution Adopted by the CCAR

Welfare

Adopted by the CCAR at the 86th Annual Convention of
the Central Conference of American Rabbis
1975

WHEREAS we are heirs of a prophetic tradition which ever sought to repair the damaged world, and

WHEREAS in our efforts to restore the world to sanity we affirm the following position which we take knowing full well the complexity of such an issue but knowing also that we cannot be silent,

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that we protest budgetary economies by our government which would affect such programs as food stamps, Medicare and Medicaid. We once again go on record as supporting such programs as they insure basic food and health facilities for the disadvantaged. We seek a broadening of health and welfare benefits to the most disadvantaged.
