Hanukah's Splendor Streams from the Menorah

Hanukah Menorahs have many shapes. Artists have fashioned them skil-
fully throughout the centuries that have elapsed since the Maccabees triumphed
over Judaea's enemies. Whatever type of Menorah is selected for the kindling
of the Hanukah lights, their luster, emanating from Jewish homes throughout
the world, join in a unity for our people's service in the cause of religious free-
dom and justice for all mankind. As we continue to light our Menorahs on
this Festival of Lights, we recall the following acclamation of Hanukah's
glorious role, penned by Theodore Herzl more than 60 years ago:
"Then came the eighth day, when the whole row burns, even the faith-
ful ninth, the servant, which on other nights is used only for the lighting of
the others. A great splendor streamed from the Menorah. The children's
eyes glistened. When there is but one light all is still dark, and the solitary
light looks melancholy. Soon it finds one companion, then another, and another.
The darkness must retreat. The light come first to the young and the poor—
then others join who love Justice, Truth, Liberty, Progress, Humanity, and
Beauty. When all the candles burn, then all stand and rejoice over the achieve-
ment. And no office can be more blessed than that of a Servant of the Light."

Rising Toronto Anti-Semitism
Prompts Intensified Offensive

TORONTO, (JTA) A resolution calling for intensified efforts to enlist governmental,
Christian church and civic opposition to increasing manifestations of anti-Semitism in this city was
adopted here at a meeting attended by 400 representatives of most of the major Jewish organi-
zations in Canada. The resolution suggested:
1. Federal and provincial legislation to prevent dissemination of racist and hatemongering
materials through the mails and through other communications media; 2. A series of confer-
ences with non-Jewish as well as Jewish groups to publicize the dangers of neo-Nazism here, and
to increase anti-Nazi educational programs both in the school and for adults; 3. The enlistment
of support of other organizations toward activating their efforts in this field.
Under the chairmanship of Meyer W. Gasner, chairman of the Ontario Region of the
Canadian Jewish Congress, principal addresses on the developments of increasing anti-Semitic
manifestations were delivered by Sidney M. Harris, chairman of the National Joint Community
Relations Committee of the Canadian Jewish Congress and Bnai Brith; and Prof. Jacob Finkelman,
also representing the CJC. The resolution, voted unanimously, was presented by Harry Simon,
chairman of the Jewish Labor Committee.
Reports were given, both from the podium and by organizational delegates in the audience,
about the spate of recent anti-Jewish manifestations. These have included the distribution here of
several thousand pamphlets, linking the assassination of U.S. President Kennedy with Communism
and Jews; receipt in the mails of many post cards bearing the slogan "Hitler was right,

$105,000,000 UJA Goal Set for '64 to Meet
New Overseas Needs; M. M. Fisher Given High
National Post; Plan Budgeting Here Sunday

By Jewish News Special Correspondent

NEW YORK—Nearly 2,000 delegates from scores of cities
throughout the land, and from a majority of the States and
from Canada, unanimously approved a goal of $105,000,000-
$9,000,000 more than in 1963—which will be needed urgently
to meet obligations of the United Jewish Appeal during 1964.
The high goal was adopted at the annual national confer-
ence of the UJA, held at the New York Hilton Hotel, marking
the launching of the 26th annual drive for funds to meet needs
of newcomers in Israel, as well as relief needs of oppressed
Jews overseas.
National UJA leaders and spokesmen for Israel and for the
Joint Distribution Committee indicated the immensity of the
tasks facing the UJA in the present critical period, when tens
of thousands must be resettled in Israel yearly.
The delegates learned that three quarters of a million dis-
tressed Jews overseas and immigrants to Israel will require
American Jewry's help in the years to come—this number rep-
resenting the most serious demand that has been made for
help in more than a decade.
Former Israel Prime Minister Moshe Sharett, now chairman
of the Jewish Agency for Israel, and Charles H. Jordan, JDC
overseas director-general, told the delegates that 751,500 men,
women and children in 31 countries 100,000 more than had
been helped by these UJA-supported agencies this year—will
require major relief, welfare, migration, resettlement and rehabil-
itation assistance in 1964. Of this number, 342,000 are recent
and expected immigrants in Israel.
Joseph Meyerhoff, UJA general chairman, then urged the
delegates to consider adoption of the increased 1964 goal in the

The Jewish Welfare Federation's 15th annual
pre-campaign budget conference will open at 9:30 a.m.
Sunday at the Jewish Center, to give the members of
the Jewish community, and particularly directors of
the Federation, its member agencies and workers in
its Allied Jewish Campaign, a chance to participate
in allocating funds to be raised in the Federation's 1964
Allied Jewish Campaign.

Max M. Fisher, president of
the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion of Detroit, for the past
few years a national chair-
man of the United Jewish
Appeal, was named to the
newly created post of asso-
ciate national chairman, at
the annual national confer-
ence in New York, last Sun-
day. He will work in the
second top office of the UJA
with the general chairman,
Joseph Meyerhoff of Balti-
more. Another Detroiter, Jo-
seph Holtzman, a national
UJA chairman since 1953, has

been re-elected.

The conference will develop a formula for allocating funds
among the following categories: Overseas and Israel, Detroit—
Operating and Capital, and National Agencies.
Unofficially, the pre-Campaign budget conference marks the
beginning of full scale preparations for the 196'4 Allied Jewish
Hyman Safran, steering committee chairman in 1962, again
leads the committee this year. After a continental breakfast, the
chairmen of Federation's three budget and planning divisions
and of its committee on capital needs will outline anticipated
needs in the area of community relations, health and welfare,
education and capital needs . . There also will be a presentation
of anticipated needs overseas. Those in attendance are encour-
aged to ask questions and to comment on the presentations. Then
a steering committee, composed of approximately 25 of those
present, will meet to develop a budget formula to take into
account the presentation of needs and the comments of those
present. The formula developed must be approved by the board
of governors of the Federation before it is binding for allocation
