had become partners in the work
of bringing health, welfare and
educational programs to the needy
Jews of Western Europe. This
new situation, he pointed out,
was reflected in the fact that the
phrase, • "Assembly of European
Jewish Communities," had been
appended to the conference name.
"We have shared the struggle
together," he declared. "Now,
we may begin to share the vic-
tory."
Charles Jordan, overseas direc-
tor of the JDC, told the session
that it had to consider areas in
Moslem countries • where mass
needs continued to exist, and
Israel where the JDC still op-
erated a direct relief program for
the aged, ill and chronically han-
dicapped newcomers.
Jordan said the JDC program
functioned in 25 countries and
declared that total expenditures
in 1960, for 226,000 men, women
and children, would exceed $29,-
000,000. He pointed out that the
JDC, in• addition to funds from
the United Jewish Appeal in the
United States, also received funds
from other sources like the
South African Jewish Appeal, the
Canadian Jewish Congress, the
French Jewish Appeal and the
Conference on Jewish Material
Claims Against Germany.

A working session of the con
f erence was told that 9

45,000, attended Jewish school

it was reported, nearly all the
Jewish children of the country
were attending school. JDC day-
care programs for pre-school
children, it was disclosed, serve
over 6,000 children in the Mos-
lem countries.
