Detroit Allied Jewish Campaign
Dollars Help to Settle Refugees

Members of an Egyptian family are shown here shortly
after they got off the airport bus in front of the Sheraton-
Cadillac Hotel. Second from left is Mrs. Ellen Rackway, case-
worker of the Resettlement Service, a member agency of the
Jewish Welfare Federation.

In 1961 the declining trend of
Jewish migration to the United
States from the "trouble spots"
of the world was reversed. From
a low of some 1,200 in 1960 the
number of Jewish immigrants
rose to over 3,700 and this fig-
ure was approached again in
1962. This total •makes up one-
half the Jews relocated in all
parts of the world outside of
These Jews "on the move"
are assisted by the worldwide
program of the United HIAS
Service, a major beneficiary of
the Allied Jewish Campaign.
United HIAS helps the migrant
family to determine its eligibil-
ity to come to the United States,
makes representations to gov-
ernment officials in their be-
half, helps in the location of
relatives and friends of pros-
pective immigrants, offers per-
sonal counseling and, when nec-
essary, pays for the transporta-

Alpha Omega Alumni
to Present Ka- plan in
Public Lecture

Noted philosopher Abraham
Kaplan, professor of philosophy
at the University of California,
will address the Detroit Alumni
. Chapter of Alpha Omega Dental
Fraternity Wednesday evening
at the:Raleigh House.
His topic will be "Jewish
Mysticism and Modern Psychi-
The son of a rabbi, Kaplan
was educated at the College of
St. Thomas in Minnesota, the



University of Chicago and the
University of California at Los
Angeles. He has served as a
Fellow at the Center for Ad-
vanced Study in the Behavioral
Sciences. He now is a Fellow at
the Center for Advanced Study
at Wesleyan University in Con-
necticut. Professor Kaplan is
recipient of both the Guggen-
heim and Rockefeller fellow-
ships and is co-author of "Power
and Society" and the author of
"The New World of Philoso-
The dinner, lecture and social
hour will be open to the com-
munity, according • to President
Dr. Aaron Blake. For informa-
tion, call Dr. Martin Naimark,
chairman of the affair, UN

tion, reception and, often, the
initial housing. All of these
services to the desperate people
who need them are made avail-
able through Allied Jewish Cam-
paign dollars.
Under the U. S. laws an im-
migrant family must have "as-
surances" that it will not be
dependent on public -support in
order to be admitted. United
HIAS secures these "assurances"
for Jewish families from the
organized Jewish community.
In Detroit these assurances are
provided by the Resettlement
Service, a local beneficiary of
the Allied Jewish Campaign.
When Resettlement Service
agrees to accept families it does
so in behalf of the contributors
to the Campaign.
When a refugee family ar-•
rives in Detroit, Resettlement
Service meets it, helps it reset-
tle, meets the cost of setting it
up in housekeeping ($400 to
$500), provides financial assist-
ance covering rent, living ex-
pense, clothing, while it helps
the family become self-suffi-
cient. Other local agencies are
called in as needed: the Jewish
Vocational Service, for help
with employment; the Shiffman
Clinic of Sinai Hospital for med-
ical services; and the Jewish
Center for recreation and inte-
gration of both the children and
adults on the American scene.
Since the end of World War
II (1945), 723 family units in-
cluding 1,568 individuals have
been resettled in Detroit with
the help of Resettlement Serv-
ice and other local member
agencies of Federation.
Here, too, the downward
trend was reversed in 1961
when the number of local units
rose to 18 (46 individuals). In
1962 this number increased to
29 units comprising 79 individ-
uals. Refugees arrived in De-
troit from Romania (11 family
units), Cuba (eight units, includ-
ing three unattached children),
Hungary (five units), Poland
(four units) and Egypt (one
The number in 1963 promises
to be greater. These people
come to us in Detroit without
the means to provide their next
meal. The average cost of estab-
lishing and maintaining a ref-
ugee family is about $220 a
month. Taking into account
health factors, adjustment prob-
lems, language difficulties, these
families have established the
record of achieving full self-
support in an average of eight
months after arrival.
We are fortunate to have the
opportunity through our organ-
ized services to help these trou-
bled,. often long-suffering fam-
ilies to a life of self-respect and
dignity in Detroit. Contributed
dollars make this important job
possible. The opportunity is
greater in 1963 than in previous
years. All it takes is additional
funds—part of the plus money
required by the 1963 Allied
Jewish Campaign.
