What is called the urban crisis is not just a crisis of decaying cities. It is a crisis of people - minority people, the Black American, the Mexican American, the Puerto Rican American seeking full citizenship and equality in the American system. And I see the need for Jews to help - as a thoroughly Jewish obligation, as well as an American one.
