Resolution Adopted by the CCAR

Health Care

Adopted by the CCAR at the 87th Annual Convention of

the Central Conference of American Rabbis


WHEREAS our tradition teaches concern for all people, especially the poor and the

elderly, and

WHEREAS all Americans should have the right to adequate health care, and

WHEREAS the high cost of medical care makes it virtually impossible for large segments

of our population to receive it,

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that we call on Congress to enact a comprehensive national

health insurance program such as the Kennedy-Corman bill to cover prevention, treatment

and rehabilitation in all areas of health care.
