which had already raised more

Dr. Mayer praised the aid
of American Jews and said
European Jews were deter-
mined to do their share in the
future in providing help
where Jews are in need, par-
ticularly in Israel.
Warburg said the Standing
Conference marked the start of
the end of years of dependency
and of an era of "equal partner-
ship with the Jews of America."
The Conference is made up of
organized Jewish communities
in 12 West European countries.
Charles H. Jordan, JDC direc-
tor-general for overseas opera-
tions, said the number of Jewish
refugees reaching France from
North African countries are still
growing and estimated that in
1963 the JDC would have to
provide $4,000,000 for them, a
boost of more than $1,300,000
over this year. He said the larg-
est single item on the JDC bud-
get, $7,650,000, would go to the
JDC-Malben welfare program
for the aged, ill and handicapped
in Israel. The next largest item
of nearly $6,500,000 was for aid
in Europe, mainly refugees, and
most of it for France. Some
100,000 Jews in the Moslem
countries will continue to need
help. JDC will provide assist-
ance to more than 80,000 in Is-
rael in 1963, some 50,000 of
them in Malben institutions,
with another $700,000 for aid to
yeshivot and other religious and
cultural programs in Israel.
Leavitt, in his report, said
that more than 100,000 Jewish
refugees from Algeria arrived
in France in four months this
year. At the same time, thou-
sands of other Jewish refu-
gees came to France from Tu-
nisia and other parts of North
Africa, from Eastern Europe
and other areas, suddenly ex-
panding French Jewry into
the world's fourth largest
Jewish community.
He reported preliminary fig-
ures indicated that almost 26,-
000 men, women and children
received aid under individual
country programs, 96,000 of
them in Moslem. areas, more
than 84,000 in 13 European
countries and some 81,000 in
Israel. The aid included cash
relief for 43,435 persons, food
for 89,625, medical aid to 37,735,
aid to 2,650 in homes for chil-
dren and to 5,510 in homes for
the aged, to schools with 56,005
students and to cultural and re-
ligious programs serving 39,275.
Leavitt disclosed that during
1962, the JDC helped 80,945
Jews in Israel, including 47,480
by JDC-Malben. Malben con-
tinued to implement during
1962 a policy shifting emphasis
from institutional care of the
aged to extra-mural care, with
priority in institutions to bed-
ridden cases. Leavitt also noted
that a monthly average of more
than 13,000 older persons re-
ceived grants from a fund set
up by the Welfare Ministry, the
municipalities, the Jewish
Agency and Malben. Aid was
given 280 aged persons living
independently.
The JDC continued during
1962- its long-standing support
for a variety of cultural and re-
ligious program in Israel, with
a total of 18,465 beneficiaries.
During the 1961-62 school year,
seven new institutions were
added to JDC-supported yesh-
ivas, bringing the total to 102.
