Protest Statement
on Fund-Raising
by Agency Official

Editor, The Jewish News:
I have just received a state-
ment printed in your newspa-
per (several months ago) in
which Isadofe Hamlin, admin-
istrative director of the Jew-
ish Agency in the U.S., states
that "the Kupath Ramban Co-
lel Polen, an Israel institution,
has never been authorized by
the Jewish Agency to engage
in public fund-raising in the

made here for the Kupath Ram-
ban by Rabbi Max J. Wohlge-
lernter, former Detroit rabbi
now with the Israel Chief Rab-
binate. The letter containing
the above statement ascribed to
Hamlin followed at a later
. Mr. Hamlin's statement is a
hasty and irresponsible act,
which may bring considerable
loss, first and foremost, to the
institution in whose name he
has spoken. According to the
best of my knowledge, this is

. . . (My) personal opinion
is that the regional Welfare
Fund in Detroit has the full
right to undertake the sole
solicitation of fund-raising in
Detroit . . . providing that the
welfare fund represent all the
authorized institutions, without
depriving any institution, and
to distribute the funds relative
to the annual budgets of each
I would gladly accept such a
step. This will naturally mean
that no private solicitation of
funds will be made in Detroit.
But unfortunately the Welfare
Fund of Detroit has never ap-
proached us with such a re-
quest. Thus as long as the Wel-
fare Fund in Detroit does not
_ claim to represent all the in-
stitutions in Israel, it hasn't
the right to prevent, and . espe-
cially to hinder or,ruin, a fund-
raising campaign for any other
I am sure that the wide com-
munity in Detroit and through-
out the United States will, in
the future as in the past, show
their sympathy and aid toward
this prominent and age-old in-
stitution (which has built
houses and rehabilitated fami-
lies in the Holy Land for over
100 years).

building plans (for which the
new campaign was begun), I

Pembroke and Chippewa

and Frustrating Shrugs

Editor, The Jewish News:
Your commentary on the Bris-
coes and Cantors compels me to
call your attention to two other
items, in the same issue, that
are related if not an intrinsic
part of the problem you pose.
The f i r s t, in Mr. Smolar's
c o I *Li In n, quotes Dr. William
Haber questioning w h e t h e r
present day Jewish youth is
properly inculcated with Jewish
values; the other r e v e a 1 s a
Lutheran drive to convert Jews
in Philadelphia and Chicago.
Your plaintive query as to
WHY "these" Jews flaunt their
defections calls for more than
just a frustrating shrug of the
shoulder s. Furthermore, at-
tempts at recalling the "good
old days" of Orthodoxy in hopes
of stemming what you call the
"escape" of Jewish children are
stop-gap measures, if not futile.
I think that I am qualified to
make some observations in this
regard in view of my years of
teaching in both public and re-
ligious school systems. I share
your concern, but I suggest that
you look to other areas for ex-
planation and possible correc-
tive action. Realistic educa-
tional techniques may insure a
love of our heritage in such
depth as was shown by Hannah
and her sons.
