In Jewish Population Studies 25 (Papers in Jewish Demography, 1989), 24-28. We report here on an effort to make use of a key informant survey to facilitate the process of community planning with respect to the needs of the Jewish elderly and the implications of the aging of Jewish communities. The survey has been carried out in three languages in an international comparative framework of Jewish communities throughout the world. It has been conducted in two points in time, 1985 and 1989.
