Honor the Modern "Maccabees" of Israel
The partnership between the Jewish Agency and the JDC,
cemented during the years of the existence of the UJA, has
brought about unprecedented unity in the ranks of American
Jewry in the field of philanthropy . . . Few remember now the
competition that existed between Zionist and non-Zionist Jews
in this country 25 years ago prior to the establishment of the
UJA . . . This competition in fund-raising had divided American
Jewry into two camps which were far from being friendly toward
each other . . . The animosity disappeared as soon as both camps
were merged in the United Jewish Appeal . . . The JDC was the
larger partner and • the Jewish Agency was the smaller . . .
However, as the partnership grew and the spirit of unity was
strengthened between the leaders of the two camps, the JDC
turned its emigration work to Palestine over to the Jewish
Agency and with it also necessary funds from the UJA . . . Thus,
the Jewish Agency became the larger partner and the JDC the
smaller, at the initiative of the JDC itself . . . This change was
brought about in a spirit of friendship even before the State
of Israel was established . . . Today the Jewish Agency is the
recipient of UJA funds for emigration to Israel while the JDC
is financing Jewish emigration to other overseas lands through
the United Hias Service . . . The JDC also finances the work
of the ORT in training Jews in many countries, including Israel-,
in useful professions, and almost a half of the JDC budget today
is spent in Israel in maintaining institutions for aged and handi-
Entering in its 25th year of existence, the UJA can divide
its history into three epochs . . . The first was the "Montor
epoch," when Henry Montor was the executive head of the
UJA . . . The second was the epoch when the UJA work was
conducted under Dr. Joseph Schwartz, who is now the executive
head of the Israel bond campaign . . . In the current period, the
work is conducted by Rabbi Herbert A. Friedman . . . Behind
the success of the UJA stand a group of devoted Jewish leaders.
outstanding among whom is Edward M. M. Warburg, general
chairman of the UJA for a number of years and now its
honorary chairman . . . He attempts to stand in the background
of the UJA by devoting himself chiefly to the work of the Joint
Distribution Committee of which he is the chairman . . . He is
always at the disposal of Joseph Meyerhoff, the present UJA
general chairman who is himself one of the strongest pillars.
