Abstract
Intergenerational equity is a central issue not only in gerontological theories but for the gerontological field at large. This concept makes possible the social construction of old age, which entails social policy outcomes, and provides another important angel to issues of justice, abuse and neglect of older people. The fairness of financial redistribution between generations has significant impact on the development of social services, privatization, and shifts in social policy. When looking closer at these issues within the Israeli social context, a complex and incoherent picture emerges.
