Community Day Campaign
Celebration Set December 6
mam ma
Jewish Welfare Federation is
planning a "community day" at
Emerald Hills Country Club on
Monday, Dec. 6. Planned as a
"campaign celebration," the day
will mark the first time that such
a celebration has taken place at
the beginning of the campaign
rather than at the end.
Invitations to participate in the
day's functions have been extend-
ed to everyone who worked on the
Federation's campaign last year
or who is currently working on
this year's campaign. Space limi-
tations will necessitate reserva-
tions being taken on a first-come
first-served basis, however, as
there are accommodations for only
180 persons. It is suggested that
recipients of invitations return the
enclosed1 cards as soon as they
receive them.
The day will start off at 1 p.m.
for all those who wish to partici-
pate in golf events; there will be
many kinds of golf tourneys and
trophies for the winners. Follow-
ing this activity, cocktails will be
served promptly at 5:30. The
drinks are being provided by Holly-
wood Inc. After the cocktail hour,
dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m.;
at that time the group attending
will be welcomed by Robert W.
Gordon, president of Jewish Wel-
fare Federation. In addition, Mr.
Gordon will give a short resume

More than 50 sessions an:? work-
shops at the Assembly were fo-
cused on the priorities, concerns

Analysis Not Surprising
It surely comes as no surprise that a State Department
analysis of the condition of Soviet Jev/s finds that it is all
exaggerated when it comes to charging that they "live in a
state of terror." The temptation is strong to point out that the
same Department of the U.S government also analyzed
the condition of German Jews under Hitler to be grossly
exaggerated, and has historically viewed the Jewish state
in the Middle East from an anti-Israel bias that is intended
to keep Israel weak.
As witnesses such as Prof. Hans Morgenthau have
made clear, it is irrelevant to compare Russia today with
Nazi Germany or Stalin's Russia. But while the "terror" is
different in nature being more spiritual than physical
it is no less significant. Theia are many self-evident truths
in the State Department's report that Jews hold high eco-
nomic and professional positions in the Soviet Union
perhaps even "far out of proportion to their percentage of
the population" but the present regime has made it plain
by its action that this is more the result of past policies
than its attitude toward Jev/3 since the Six-Day War of 1967.
It is no excuse to state that Jews ore treated no dif-
ferently than other Russians when it comes to emigration
and religion. The fact is that, by law, they have an inde-
pendent status and it is so stated on their internal pass-
ports. No analyses by our State Department can contradict
the fact that their rights as Russian Jews have been denied
and that continued pressure by Americans and Jews all
over the world is helping them to win those rights.
Dilemmas Summed Up
Major speakers at the recent B'nai B'rith convention
appeared to sum up the dilemmas of American Jewish
life today in addresses which, or the surface, would appear
to be guite different.
The revered Mordecai Kaplan, whose Reconstructionist
movement has had a greater impact on our religious life
than probably any other leader of our time, spoke of the
schizophrenia that fragmentizes Jewish life rather than
integrates it into a whole people. In a different context.
Philip Klutznik rejected the idea of assessing priorities in
Jewish life. From his point of view, none of the major con-
cerns Israel. Jewish education and Soviet Jewry are
isolated horn cne another.
Retiring president of the organization, Dr. William
Wexler. made a plea for the "power structure" to be more
accessible to Jewish youth, particularly collegians. They
are, in his opinion, innovators of a Jewish counter-culture
seeking more genuine Jev/ish involvement in the struggle
for peace and social eguality.
American Jewry's powerful fund-raising arm will be
meeting soon and it must pay heed to three of its most re-
spected leaders as they voice the concern that our institu-
tions religious and secular are not moving quickly
or effectively enough to face the issues of our times. This
would seem to be the similar message they have delivered
on themes that may appear on the surface to be different.

discrimination in employment because of the typ- of

This kind of legislation is believed to be a "first" of
its kind in the history of Western law. The principal bene-
ficiaries would, of course, be the large number of Has-

other unconventional types of dress as part of their reli-
gious observance.

EVEN SO. it Ls impossible to
believe that Mansfield and Ful-

what they were doing al-
through it is probable that this
was not so clear to many other
senators who voted against the
foreign aid bill. The point is
that South Vietnam at this stage
is much like South Korea in 1953.
The similarity of phase in the
two wars is really striking. Just
as the enemy was plainly run-
ning out of steam in Korea in
1953. so Hanoi and the Viet Cong

NEW YORK We are having to deal with a surprisinc
juvenile delinquency among adults, in New York and Washington
First there was the juvenile response bv the UN. delegations to
the China vote, then the juvenile response of President Nixon.
and finally the juvenile response of the Senate to kill the tahole

Stature of the UN.. Senate and President, are likely to be the
poor throughout the world and their children.
A tC *
RECALLING LEMVS "sickness of left infantilism" what
we have thus witnessed was the unholy alliance between the In-
fantile left and the infantile right. The conservatives of both
parties, long haters of foreign aid. were unable alone to kill it.
The liberals, mainly Democrats of lofty humanitarian persuasion,
have come to reject foreign aid because much of it is military.
>! alone they, too, couldn't kill it. But the two together, in an
unholy alliance of right-wing isolationism and left-wing isola-
tionism, hit on the winning -- and damning vote.
I dislike both infantilism* and both isolationisms, yet I know
how powerful are the emotional sources from which they derive
The right-wing isolationists arc convinced we are being played
for a sucker by cynical Old World regimes and upstart small
nations. They also suspect that it makes them popular back
home to assert that America won't continue as the source ol
outdoor relief and global welfarism for nations too lazy to stand
on their own feet and ingrates to boot.
The Marshall Plan, which started the aid program, wa-
nner meant to get gratitude, but to put the shattered societies
of Europe back on their feet. But the newer nations have lacked
the kind of political fabric that Europe had. and aid to them
has foundered because they have not used it to become produc-
tive. However, the whole array of technical assistance programs
has been worth doing, and it would be childish to end them.
it a
THE TWO BATTLE CRIES wove together like point and
counterpoint from the right wing. "To hell with the U.N. and
the funny little nations." and from the left wing. "To bell with
the regimes we don't like." Their joint victory came as a sur-
prise even to ihe victors, especially to the Fulbright liberals.
They thought they were only doing their regular routine (ling,
to have some fun with Nixon and assert the Senate machismo.
and lo and behold, here they were in possession of the field -
and without much notion of what to do with their triumph.
All they have is another whiff of rhetoric to add to their
whiff of grapeshot namely that this marks the end of an era.
that the cold war is over and with it the idea of foreign aid as
a means of influence in foreign policy. I am always impressed
by the rhetorical gimmick of anyone who pronounces that some-
thing marks the end of this or that without pronouncing what it
marks the beginning of.
One thing I feel in my bones as well as in my mind that
foreign aid badly needs rethinking. This particular old, gray,
heeling, spavined mare ain't what she used to be. The double
aim of foroign aid was to help the weak economies and to exert
a leverage influence on regimes. But the handouts of capital for
ambitious schemes failed to do anything. And the inevitable out-
come of trying to make friends by gifts is to make enemies -
once the gifts slow down or stop.
* THE ONLY AID THAT has carried some influence clout
h is been military aid. which is why it has watced while economic-
aid has waned. In many new small states the elites that count
are the military elites. To close down the American military
missions, as Fulbright suggests, would mean to break communi-
cations with these elites and surrender them to other voices.
Maybe American foreign aid should be handed over to inter-
national agencies to administer, with American money, but I
can t see that this will assuage the "Uncle Sam Sucker" syn-
drome of many senators. There ought to be a better way of do-
it than the present one which puts the executive and military in
the saddle and frustrates the Senate. Surely this should be de-
cided in a full-dress debate in Congress and the nation, and not
by the snap judgment of a Senate acting on pique, with 32 of
lt< members off on fiddlings of their own while foreign aid
burned. Any new Plan, in my own view, should bring into the
picture the experience and judgment of a nongovernmental
group, to ride herd on executive and Congress, diplomats and
military, and give the nation the cooler detachment of outsiders^

Ross, "most of the time I was the
youngest person at all those meet-

I got to know all the well-known
jeople who came into town to
speak for Federation. Usually tney
were entertained at our home and
I remember how I loved listening
to the conversation and getting to
know them personally."
Mr. Beckerman. a native Flori-

of his time to community activi-

sensational espionage case which
led to the so-called Lavon Affair
and a bitter political feud be-
tween former Premier David
Ben-Gurion and former Defense
Minister Pinhas Lavon.
Two of the Israelis, Victor
Levi and Phillip Nathanson were
sentenced to life imprisonment:
the others received sentences
of from 7-15 years. None of them
escaped from jail. How they
managed to reach Israel remains
classified information which the
authorities will not disclose.
All belonged to an Israeli es-

early 1950s. The ring was un-
covered by Egyptian police in

sour relations between Egypt and
the United States backfired.
Twelve Jews were subsequently
arrested and eight were found
guilty of espionage. Two of the
accused. Dr. Moshe Marzouk. a
physician at the Jewish Hospital

Tho scene was the beautiful Emerald Hills home of Norma
and Bill Horwitz and tho occasion was a planning meeting for
the Hollywood Scholarship Foundation. This group has become
so knowledgeable in the field of awarding scholarships to high
school seniors that it has been suggested that they serve as a
c.caring house for all other scholarship groups. In this way,
it is felt, duplication of efforts might be avoided.
The members of the board were told they could bring a
friend who might be interested in working for the Fund to this
meeting. Among the girls attending for the first time were
Sylvia Burton, Gladys Rosenfield, Jackie Zbar, Harriett Sultan,

The ADL dinner given to honor Abe Mailman proved to be
one of the best evenings of the year. Abe set the tone of the
right whin he insisted that the evening be one of fun with danc-
ing and music and few speeches. The audience could have lis-
tened forever to chief speechmaker Dore Schary. Abe followed
his own instructions, making only a very brief acceptance speech
for the human relations award he received before saying, "Let's
all dance."
From Hollywood, there was a tremendous contingent of
Abe's friends. In an anteroom before dinner as we all stood
arcund listening to the swinging music of a small combo, smack-
ing delicious hors doeovres and sipping drinks, I stopped to talk
to Shirley and Abe Fischler. to tell Abe that the pipe he had
left at our house after dining there recently had caused one of
my children to remark. "What a status symbol to have Abe
Fischler-s pipe sitting on our bar!" When I returned it to Shirley,

is called a "Siyum Hatorah," or

It takes a scribe, who is trained
in this art, nearly a year to write
a Torah parchment. He leaves the
first few lines and the last few
lines open, to oe completed by a
scribe at a given time and service.
For Beth Shalom, this will be done
Sunday by members at large.
The ceremony is called "Com-

"Siyum Hatorah," and the pro-
ceedings will begin under a bridal
canopy on the corner of U.S. 1

musicians will accompany the
members as they march to the
temple where a special cocktail
[arty will be held, followed by a
service of inscription in the sanct-

THERE IS a good chance that
Senator Aiken will devise a sub-
stitute aid bill, not ideal but not
designed to destroy the Viet-
namization program, either.
There is also a good chance that
a majority of Sen. Furoright's
committee will then vote to re-
port the substitute bill to the
Senate. The situation is not
desperate, in short.
But when U.S. senators ac-
tively and consciously seek to
procure American defeat in war,
it is a matter that deserves plain
speaking. And Mansfield and1
Fulbright were the undoubted
leaders of such an attempt.

To Purchase More
Israeli Products
An effort to have each Jewish
family in South Florida purchase
Israel products regularly was
launched here by Yehoushua Mes-
houlach, an official representative
of the Israeli government on leave
from "Davar," one of the leading
newspapers in Israel
Mr. Meshoulach noted that if
every Jewish family in the free
world were to spend one dollar a
person each week on Israeli prod-
ucts of good quality and reasonable
price, the gross income to Israel
would approximate $400 million.
He made a similar proposal in
"Davar" during the Economic
Conference in Jerusalem convened
in 1968, and succeeded in having
the Jewish Agency Initiate an in-
depth survey of its practicality.
He later was sent to Philadelphia,
Pa., to direct a pilot project in-
tended to prove the workability
of the concept.

"And Jacob went out from Beer-Sheba, and wont toward
Haran ." (Chapters XXVIII, 10-XXXII, 31
BETH-EL: On his journey from Beer-Sheba towards Huran,
Jacob came to the city of Luz and rested for the night in the
open air. He dreamed that angels were ascending and descending
n ladder stretching from earth towards heaven. God appeared to
him and promised that the land would belong to his descendants
j.nd that he would return home under his protection. On awaken-
;ng, Jacob consecrated the stone he had used for a pillow and
renamed the place Beth El, the House of God, and vowed that
when he returned safely to his father's house he would offer
Go..' a titlv of all he owned. I
JACOB AND LABAN: Jacob reached the outskirts of |
Huran where some shepherds told him that Rachel, Laban's
laughter, was coming to the well to water her fathers sheep.
On her arrival, without waiting for help, he removed the stone
which covered the well and watered her flock. He then announced
himself to Rachel, who quickly ran to inform her father of his
arrival Jacob was welcomed by I^aban and, falling in love with
Rachel undertook to work as his shepherd for seven years in
leturn for her nan.! in marriage. Ijjban agreed, but tricked
Jacob into marrying his elder daughter Leah, using the excuse
that it \Va>. th, custom for the elder daughter to be married
first. Jacob had no but to accept the situation, and mar-
lied Rachel also, after which he served another seven yean for
her. Leah and Rachel, and their handmaidens, Zilpah an.: Bilhah,
bore him 11 sons and one daughter.
JACOB RETURNS HOME: At the end of the 14 years,
Jacob wished to return home, but yielded to Laban's pressure to
n main in return for all the speckled and spotted sheep and goats
among the flock he tended. The crafty Laban, true to his na-
ture, removed all the marked sheep from his flock sending them
away with his sons to a distant place. Through a clever device,
Jacob defeated I-aban's cunning, so that the unblemished sheep
have speck lee and spotted lambs which he could then claim as
his own. Another six years passed by and Jacob prospered, but
noticing the jealousy of I-aban's sous and the changed attitude
of Laban, he took his wives, children and cattle while Laban
was away shearing his sheep, and began his journey homewards.
Laban overtook Jacob in the Mountain of Gilead. Laban accused
Jacob of theft, which Jacob strongly denier", reminding Laban
ot the 20 years of hard toil he gave him. I-aban's anger subsided,
both concluded a covenant of j>eacc and Jacob and his family

Jews emulate the angels when they
sanctify the Almighty. In this ac-
tion, num "rises" to the level of
the angels and hence, some rise
on their toes.
In a sense, this ex|erience ele-
Vates man himself to spiritual
heights. After all, the Almighty
dee- not need man's expressions to
sanctify Him.
The recitation of the Kedusha
simply is an instrument to benefit
man by impressing him with the
idea thai man is capable of rising
to the heights of sanctity.
Why are certain verses in the
prayer liturgy repeated three

court would repeal his message

(Maharil) has explained that rep-
etition safeguards against error.
Basically, certain key phrases
or verses were repeated throe times
to emphasize their certainty, to
help us realize their importance
and to perhaps remind us that we
are before the heavenly court when
we pray.

Cloudy Future For Argentine Jewry
(Copyright (C) 1971 Jpwinh Telegraphic Agency)
THE SITUATION OF Argentine Jewry has de-
teriorated markedly during the last year. In
part this is due to the general economic and politi-
cal crisis in the country, governed since 1966 by
the military, with limited wisdom. In March 1971,
Gen. Alejandro Lanusse assumed the presidency of a
nation tired by continuous economic misguidance and
progressive pauperization through inflation. For
1971 an inflation rate of 45-50% is anticipated, cer-
tainly the highest in Latin America, and possibly in
the world. The government has promised a prompt
political solution through democratic elections, but
in the economic field a strong tendency is felt on
the part of the president's advisers to implement
non-liberal policies of a more or less socialising
character. This has caused a sharp retraction in in-
vestments, superimposed on the lingering recession
which started soon after the Cordoba disturbances
in May 1969. Since then a continuous drain of
capita] has taken place in search of security and pro-
tection from devaluation. The purchase of dollars,
according to official sources, has reached eight
billion, probably the most eloquent expression of
lack of faith in the management of the Argentine
The situation of the Jewish community must
be seen in the context of the general situation. As
reported earlier, many specifically Jewish swindles,
frauds and bankruptcies have hastened the Jewish
community toward its own financial doom. Many
honest small investors and businessmen were drag-
ged into this whirlpool and drowned innocently. The
situation testified to a relaxation of moral stand-
ards. The Jewish school system has been severely
affected and some 2.000 parents were unable to
continue their children in Jewish schools for lack of
means. The Buenos Aires Kehilla has stepped in
with grants and fellowships, but its own financial
position is precarious.
An inevitable polarization is taking place in
Argentina: the rich grow richer, since they know
how to protect their fortunes, while the poor grow
poorer by the effects of the inflation. The lower
middle class is threatened with extinction. The Jew-
ish hospital, the home for the aged and for orphans
and other beneficent institutions are trying desper-
ately to cope with the growing needs of the impov-
erished Jews. Both Jewish dailies have published
anxious appeals to their advertisers, asking them to
pay their debts and continue supporting the papers
with ads. One of them said editorially: "It would
be a pity if Buenos Aires were converted spiritually
into a cemetery." Obviously, in this particular case,
the generational factor should not be overlooked, as
the Yiddish-speaking readers are slowly dying out.
The Buenos Aires kehilla budgeted for some
$500,000 for social aid, but had to spend some $800,-
000. as it could not deny aid to people who came ask-
ing for money in order to satisfy the hunger of
their children. Unfortunately, in order to satisfy
the 12,000 requests for social aid, the kehilla had to
thin out and spread the amount budgeted for 5,000
people. And Buenos Aires has the largest Jewish
concentration (350,000 Jews) south of the Rio
Regarding anti-Semitism, no substantial in-
crease could be detected lately, over its "normal"
level. The regime is careful on this point. As a con-
sequence of the crisis briefly sketched above, it is
plausible that many Jewish families will consider
seriously the possibility of emigrating to Israel. The
future here, particularly in its political assets, it
shrouded in clouds.

Reform In Israel's Schools
ISRAEL'S SCHOOL SYSTEM is going through a
major revision which is popularly known as "The
Reform." Much of what Is called reform here is al-
ready common practice elsewhere,
lout in some aspects, Israel educa-
Jtors are seeking to blaze new
I trails.
Basic purpose of the Reform is
to bridge the educational gap be-
tween children of economically and
culturally deprived families on the
one hand, and children of intellec-
tual and middle class families on
the other.
The universities have declared that by the time
thp young people reach that academic level it Is
too late to make up for what has been lost. The
good high schools, intent on a selective admissions
policy, have accepted relatively few pupils from
the disadvantaged segments of the population. The
situation has been made even more complex by the
fact that for the most pait the underprivileged are
children of the Sephardi or Oriental communities.
The difficulties which they face in seeking to break
out of the social and economic class into which they
were born, lead to feelings of discrimination and
frustration. The Israel version of the Black Pan-
thers is one by-product.
The Reform has set up a junior high school sys-
tem, composed of the seventh, eighth and ninth
grades. These grades draw their pupils from all
sections of the city, so that there is a deliberate
heterogeneity. In America this is what is called
"bussing." It is recommended that a maximum of
40% of the class be composed of the disadvantaged
elements, so as not to constitute too heavy a
strain on the class level.
The pupils of this mixed class sit, eat. take
part in school activities and study their various
lessons together except in three major subjects:
Hebrew, mathematics and English. In these three,
the most difficult subjects, the class is divided ac-
cording to ability groupings (Hakbatza), usually
into three groups which proceed at the pace best
suited to the ability of the pupils. Display of ability
on one level provides opportunity, at least theoreti-
cally, for immediate advancement onto the next
higher level. As might be expected, the Ashkenazi
children are the great majority in the top level, and
the Sephardic youngsters arc predominant in the
lower level.
It is too early to say how successful this sys-
tem will be in raising the standards of the children
from the backward communities, but at least they
are being given a chance under a system which does
not lower the overall standard of the school. The
Reform has been launched on a wholesale scale,
without adequate books, and with insufficiently
trained teachers, but desperate efforts are being
made to correct these deficiencies. The authorities
felt it was better to start at once than to wait un-
til conditions were ideal.
A second purpose of the Reform would appear
to have been successfully attained. This is the social
integration of the two groups. Children from the
Hatikvah quarter of Tel-Aviv are classmates with
children of the worthy North Tel-Aviv neighbor-
hood. They wear the same standard school uniform,
and they go out on field trips together. It is diffi-
cult not to make friends under such circumstances,
especially where there is goodwill on both sides.
Here and there some parents have voiced ob-
jections, but in almost every case they feared a
lowering of the academic standards of the school,
rather than the social integration.

Books On Jewish Problems
A NEW BOOK CALLED The Klft In Israel by S
Clement Leslie (Schocken Books, $7.50) pre-
sents the problems resulting from the struggle be-
tween religious authority and secular democracy.
.The author's thesis is that an es-
tablished faith based upon histori-
cal revelation is threatened by se-
cularism with man-made values
I'.nd a search by a mixture of re-
igious and secularists to find an
inward vitality of faith.
Despite Pascal's epigram that
J "The entire religion of Israel con-
Isisted only of a love of God," Jews
have learned that few have the ability to build a
coherent, transmittable spiritual life upon love
alone. Tradition is the base and anchor of any sus-
tained religion. Individual and collective obedience
is the bed-rock of traditional Judaism and they are
two sides of the single coin. The non-religious are
trying to embody the ingrained moral values ot
ancestral tradition in social institutions and conduct.
This is doomed to failure as Indicated in The New
Jew*, -edited by Alan Mlntz and James Sleeper
(Vintage Books, $2.451.
Leslie writes that the progress of Reform Juda-
ism in Israel has been a disappointment to its Is-
raeli pioneers and American sponsors "because its
religious activities have not been widely accepted as
relevant to Israeli life and problems." Leslie is a
maximalist In Jewish education and contends that
no part-time education can achieve the broad pur-
poses of a Jewish school which exists "to contribute
the continued existence of the Jews as an identifiable
group." This purpose lies athwart the crux of the
problem: shall Jews in Israel be Jews and the State
a Jewish state or shall the nation be like all other
"The New .!.*" in America are presented with
a similar problem. One of them-writes, "all that we
have tried to do is to jump on the religio-social-
action bandwagon." The book reveals the abysmal
ignorance of some of the authors and their erron-
eous concepts of Judaism and its history. One of the
editors. Sleeper, contributes two essays which are
most superficial.
The second book of the Pentateuch (Exodus)
states almost at the opening, "Now there arose a
new king over Egypt who knew Pot Joseph." In the
books of Joshua and Ezekiel we read' that, after
Joseph's death, a large portion of the Israelites for-
got the religious tradition of the Patriarchs. The
Midrash states that those who abandoned them
adopted the motto, "Let us be Egyptians in all
"The New Jews" reeks from pretentious writing
and in spots appears to subsoonsciously reject Juda-
ism. The inclusion of a rabbi over 40 years of age
with almost extreme left-wing tendencies and a non-
pactitioner of most ritual strikes an odd note in a
book "of the young generation."
Between You and Me By BORIS SMOLAR
CJFWF Assembly
THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY of the Council of
Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds, which
opens in Pittsburgh this week, marks 40 years of
the existence of the Council.
Established by the community
Federations and Welfare Funds as
their central instrument, the Coun-
cil has grown from strength to
strength with each year of its ex-
istence. Today the Council of Jew-
ish Federations and Welfare Funds
, (CJFWF) is the most important
Jewish bo Ay in this country in
guiding and advising the organized Jewish communi-
ties on community operations and on the raising of
more funds for local, national and overseas needs.
The Jewish federations are the backbone of
fund-raising for the United Jewish Appeal and
other fund-raising campaigns in the United States.
The role of the CJFWF in cooperating closely wjth
the United Jewish Appeal has proven of immense
importance to Israel. The Israeli government looks
up to the CJFWF as the mast representative body
of American Jewry.
But the CJFWF activities are not limited to
just stimulating fund-raising in the communities.
They embrace also the work of strengthening Jew-
ish life in the United States in all its aspects in
Jewish identity, culture, social welfare needs, in-
volving Jewish college youth in community pro-
grams, directing women's divisions, recruiting and
training staff for its institutions and national orga-
nizations, keeping the organized community in-
formed on all phases of communal life, helping them
in their public relations, and providing them with
research and studies dealing with Jewish commit-
ment, patterns of giving, use of non-sectarian serv-
ices, and developments in tax legislation affecting
Today, 40 years after the CJFWF came into
existence, it can be said that there is no field in
American Jewish life in which it is not involved.
There is no Jewish organization or institutions
large or small -- the problems of which do not come
to the attention of the CJFWF. It is also active In
building greater cooperation among national
With the march of time and the expansion of
its services, the CJFWF has become the recognized
central body of the organized American Jewish
community not only in the United States but also in
countries overseas. Its advice is sought by the Jew-
ish communities in various countries in Europe,
Ijitin America and South Africa. Its guidance,
based on experience, is appreciated even in Israel.
At the helm of the CJFWF stands Max M.
Fisher the "American Jewish Leader Number
One" as president. The executive vice president
is the exceptionally able Philip Bernstein, who never
boasts of his achievements but who is considered
the spark plug, and justly so. He is always alert to
every problem faced by any of the Jewish communi-
ties, organizations or institutions, and is actively
helpful in finding the proper solution.
The Jewish federations come to the CJFWF
General Assembly this year with the unprecedented
record of raising a total of $370 million for a broad
range of human Jewish needs on local and national
levels as well as for human i.eeds in Israel and
other overseas lands in 1971. This is the highest
sum ever raised for Jewish philanthropic purposes
in this country in one year.
