This figure is revealed in the
annual report, "Jewish Communal
Services — Programs and Fi-
nances," by S. P. Goldberg, pub-
lished by the Council of Jewish
Federations and Welfare Funds.
A comparison of this $625,000,000
figure — which has been called
"Jewish Gross National Product"—
with 1953 estimates, shows that in
a single decade the income and
costs of Jewish communal services
have risen $270,000,000, or more
than 75 per cent.
Jewish federations, since 1959,
have been collecting approximately
$125- to $130,000,000 in each annual
campaign. This is approximately
one-fifth of the total value of serv-
ices rendered by agencies under
Jewish auspices in the United
States. Other direct sources of in-
come include grants from Commu-
nity Chests and United Funds,
service fees and public funds, all
of which have risen markedly in
the last 10 years.
MINNEAPOLIS (JTA) — The
Minneapolis Federation for Jewish
Service has authorized the Jewish
center here to conduct a $2,820,000
capital fund drive to help finance
the construction of a new center,
expand Camp Tikvah and develop
a projected new day camp site. The
drive for the funds will be con-
ducted from Nov. 1, 1965 to Jan.

Two Strong Blows and a Weak One

Let us call her Ruth.
In Poland she wouldn't open her
door to a soul unless he knocked
on the door with two strong blows
and a weak one.
For there were her parents,
Catholics, who had opened their

Through the bare toes of his
feet the cold flowed up into the
fingertips of his hands.
"Got to warm my hands, what-
ever happens, or else I'll freeze,"
he whispered to himself. "I'll warm
'em knocking at the door!"
He delivered two powerful blows
and grew faint. The third was a

Heaven-fearing Catholics did not

There is an enchantingly beau-
tiful idyl in the Bible - it is called
the Scroll of Ruth. It is permeated
with the perfume of a field at har-
vest time, perfumed with love and
companionship. Its people accom-
pany the individual, share in his
sorrow, rejoice in his happiness.
She loves this Book, loves the
Bible, the People of the Bible, the
Land of the Bible.
We shall call her - Ruth.

This is the most charming celebra-
