Medical Care for the Aging

Medical Care for the Aging (1964)

National Women’s League (editor’s note: Women’s League for Conservative Judaism) supports federal legislation providing medical care for the aging, financed through Social Security.

The obligation of the people to safeguard the security of its aging members is deeply imbedded in traditional Judaism. Our heritage and common humanity impel us to support the Government’s efforts to give assistance to the aging, so that they may live in dignity and security.

National Women’s League (see editor’s note above) therefore recommends that affiliated Sisterhoods enlist the support of their Congressmen and Senators for the passage of legislation on behalf of the aging.

Medical Care of the Aging (1962)

“I have been young and now I am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread.” – Psalms 37:25

National Women’s League (editor’s note: Women’s League for Conservative Judaism) is concerned that the bill providing medical care for the aging through Social Security failed to be acted upon by the eighty-seventh Congress.

In view of the great need by millions of aged citizens in our land, and our religious commitment to help the aging live in dignity and security, National Women’s League (see editor’s note above) urges the eighty-eighth Congress to pass legislation providing for aid to the aging.
