Comprehensive National Study of U. S. Jewry
Has Been Authorized by Welfare Federations

Wide Variety ©f Services Rendered
Overseas with Allied Drive Funds

Wherever there are Jews who need assistance, the Joint
Distribution Committee is on hand to be of help. Whether it is
in Morocco, in Italy, in Iran or in Israel, JDC is ready with means
to uplift the downtrodden and the dispossessed. With funds pro-
vided by the United Jewish Appeal—major beneficiary of Detroit's
Allied Jewish Campaign—Jewish children are educated, and homeless
and hungry are domiciled and fed. The top photo shows children
in a Morocco nursery showing pride in their Jewish studies. The
second photo takes us to a Jewish school in Italy where JDC bene-
fited more than 6,800 needy Jews in 1964. The third photo shows
Jewish children in a JDC-financed school reciting the blessing
before lunch. The bottom photo takes us to Israel, portraying a school
where the teacher also is a cerebral palsy victim. There are five
children in the fourth grade of the special school sponsored by
Shatlem, a parents' organization in Israel devoted to care of
children suffering from cerebral palsy. Despite their handicap,
teacher and pupils find great satisfaction in advancing their educa-
tion. Such, collectively, is part of the work financed by the Allied
Jewish Campaign—supplementary to the 50 other causes aided by
the Detroit drive.

NEW YORK (JTA)—The Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations and Wel-
fare Funds, at a meeting of its
board of directors, approved a
report of its Special Committee on
Population Studies recommending
the first comprehensive national
study of American Jewry.
The CJFWF board directed that
steps be taken to implement a
study design prepared by social
scientists over a two-year period.
Pertinent local and region al
studies will be included in the
project. It was agreed that this
national study can be "an historic
step in filling a wide gap in Ameri-
can-Jewish life and in providing
information essential for sound
The report to the board was
made by Dr. Max W. Bay of Los
Angeles, a Council vice-president,
who is chairman of the board's
committee on the national founda-
tion project. He was joined in the

48—Friday, April 2, 1965

report by Dr. Fred Massarik, chair-
man of the Council's Technical
Committee on Population Studies.
The CJFWF board also voted
for affiliation with the new non-
secretarian Citizens Crusade
Against Poverty, which is a
broad national citizens' group,
under the chairmanship of Wal-
ter P. Reuther, president of the
United Automobile Workers of
America. The group was estab-
lished to mobilize widespread
and intensive support by devel-
oping "non-partisan programs of
education and activity designed
to eliminate poverty from the
life of this nation." It includes
leaders of c h u r c h, industry,
labor, civil rights, welfare, farm-
ers, civic women, veterans, stu-
dents and other groups.
Philip Bernstein, executive di-
rector of the CJFWF, reported
that American Jews are committed
to a poverty struggle which re-
quires total community planning.
To that end, he informed the
board of a series rof -inter-faith con-

sultations, involving leaders

groups, which was organized two
years ago and now meets four
times a year "to look at common
Herbert H. Schiff of Columbus,
Qhio, chairman of the Council's
Campaign Services Committee, re-
ported that several Federation
campaigns across the country were
now running 15 to 20 per cent
ahead of 1964. But he cautioned
community leaders to make sure
that later gifts continue the pace
set by leadership contributions,
which are recognized as "the best
gifts." In urging special efforts
to maintain and accelerate com-
munity campaigns, Schiff was
joined by Max M. Fisher of De-
troit, a member of the CJFWF
board and general chairman of
the United Jewish Appeal.
Board members applauded the
report that Boni Brith and its Anti-
Defamation League have rejoined
the National Community Relations
Advisory Council.
