The number of Jewish poor or "near poor" in the NYC area, is about 550,000, greater than the size of any other Jewish community in the US. Most of these Jews living in poverty are children (part of extra large ultra-Orthodox households) and elderly Russian immigrants. Money from US Jews needs to stay in the US to help care for them. Israel has enough billionaires to hand out money to Israel's poor.
