Federation lie sews Progress

(Continued from Page 1)
Devoting a major portion of his
speech to the discussion of sur-
vival and the role of youth in
Jewish activities, he said: "I am
not sure that we need to worry
about their lack of identification
and commitment, • as much as we
need to offer them the opportunity
for development and participation
and the challenge of leadership
within our Federation." He added:
"We shall have to be ingenious
enough to make Jewish pursuits

as vital to our young intellectuals,
and as attractive as the other
specializations in which they now
engage. Under the Federation um-
brella we must make more room
for enrichment programs beyond
the traditional rescue, rehabilita-
tion, health, welfare and commu-
nity relations services. It is no
longer enough to pay lip service
to our cultural needs.
"If we really mean to attract
the next generation to us, we have
to make it possible for them to
participate with us in a meaning-
ful way. The lines of communica-
tion between us and them have
to be open. I Mean for them
literally to be involved in our
policymaking boards so that we
can learn from them as well have
them learn from us."
Avrunin's Speech
Avrunin, in a brief address,
described the background of the
Federation's growth, the manner
in which available resources were
used for community benefits, and
declared:
"As we examine our place in
the larger effort in 1966 we can

be proud that the Jewish com-
munity assumes its role as a
partner and a pioneer in 'operation
upgrading', in America's striving
for individual self-respect in a
decent affluent society. Our pride
must be tempered by modesty for
we are already engaged as an or-
ganized Jewish community in the
natural 'next step — in the cultural
enrichment of our people as in-
dividuals and as members of our
faith.
"We enter this new arena of
culture without abandoning the
programs for economic and social
upgrading which we now share
with government. We address our-
selves at the same time to the
enrichment programs of our Cen-
ters, our Camps, our Jewish
Twritohpicsaulb-clima
schools. Here, too. our role is one
te
of pioneering in which we have an
opportunity to point the way, to
chart the course. If we do so ef-
fectively, using our Federation and
its agencies wisely, those who fol-
low us forty years later will have
reason for pride about our pioneer-
ing. And they will find in our
fellow Americans an even greater
receptivity to partnership in the
continuous struggle for a better
life and a fuller life."
