The sacred writings of Judaism point toward a society devoid of poverty.
Consider this short meditation from Deuteronomy 15:4-5:
However, there should be no poor among you, for in the land the LORD your God is giving you to possess as your inheritance, he will richly bless you, if only you fully obey the LORD your God and are careful to follow all these commands I am giving you today.
