Philly Family Servie!e
to Aid Law Breakers

PHILADELPHIA (JTA) — Jews
in Philadelphia who get into trou-
ble with the law, both adult and
juveniles, can count on help from
the personal aid bureau of the
Jewish Family Service.
The work of the bureau in this
area was described by Louis
Schneiderman, executive secretary
of the bureau, at a meeting of the
Federation of Jewish Agencies wo-
men's council board. He said the
bureau serves Jews who have
come into conflict with the law and
have been imprisoned or who are
on probation or parole.
He said the bureau also has a
preventive program designed to
help juveniles who have had brush-
es with the law.
He said that 95 out of every
100 prisoners eventually return
to society and that whether they
live as law-abiding citizens there-
after depends largely on what
help is offered them and their
use of it, during imprisonment
and the period immediately af-
ter release.
He also reported that other fed-
eration agencies were brought into
the situation as their services are
required. He explained that case-
work counseling and an active
group of dedicated lay people
work under professional direction
to help such Jews find a useful
life.
Another part of the juvenile
program, he disclosed, provides
cooperation with the Phildelphia
Juvenile Court. In that program,
court workers are assigned to help
screen Jewish children and adoles-
cents to determine which commu-
nity agencies can provide needed
services.

THE CLEVELAND STORY: The taxi driver in Cleveland—a young
Negro—does not ask me for the address when I tell him to take me
to the building of the Jewish Community Federation . . He knows
where the building is; and so does practically everybody else in the
city . . . The new home of the Jewish Community Federation is a
landmark in the city . . . It is one of the best-known structures
in Cleveland because of its beauty which stands out in a part of the
city's downtown section sadly lacking in beauty . . . It breathes dignity
and serenity outside and inside . . And there is great justification
in the pride with which Jews in Cleveland speak about their building
. . . It is a model of architectural excellence, and it attracts every
passer-by—Jew and non-Jew alike . . . In fact, the structure—designed
by the nationally-known New York architect Edward Durell Stone
in association with the Cleveland architects Weinberg & Teare—is
considered an architectural gem . . Built in the very heart of
Cleveland's downtown, the new home of the federation has changed
the entire area . . . Soon, the federation building will have as one
of its neighbors the Cleveland State University's new campus . .
Other neighbors will be the Community College, the YWCA and
the YMCA , . . The Cleveland Playhouse has similarly announced
plans to build a fine arts complex directly across the street from the
federation building. • • •
GENEROUS DONORS: One of the most interesting experiences about
the federation building—which is considered the finest among the
Jewish community buildings in the entire country—is the fact that it
was built by 14 donors . . . Federation leaders had been dreaming for
years to follow the example of federations in most large cities in
securing their own home rather than to function in rented facilities
. . . However, they never wanted to conduct a public campaign for
this purpose, fearing that this might affect the Welfare Fund drive
. A few years ago, one of the community leaders, Myron E. Glass,
suggested a plan whereby the necessary funds might be raised . . .
Under this plan, 14 local Jewish leaders were approached and asked
to contribute $100,000 each . . . None of them said "no," thus the
necessary sum was raised among them, without affecting the current
giving to the Welfare Fund . . . In fact, the 14 donors themselves
have consistently increased their giving to the Welfare Fund . . . The
donors became the building committee and Joseph M. Berne, a
prominent lawyer and community leader, was named chairman . . .
When the building was completed, the donors arranged that all the
furnishings in the old rented building occupied by the federation for
; 15 years be left there, and that all the furniture and equipment for
the new home of the federation be completely new and modern to
suit the aesthetic atmosphere of the structure . . . It is interesting to
note that the cost of the building itself, without the land, was about
$750,000. . Some of the donors, in addition to giving $100,000, also
contributed art as gifts to the new building.



A WELL-KNIT COMMUNITY: The new federation building is
perhaps the best symbol of the solidity of the Cleveland Jewish Com-
munity . . . There are today about 100,000 Jews in Cleveland, making
up about 23,000 families . . . But there are more than 30,000 Jewish
contributors to the local Jewish Welfare Fund . . . This means that
there are families where more than one member of the household
is contributing to the fund .. . Not only are the Jews in Cleveland a
well-knitted community, but their interest in Jewish activities goes
far beyond the local scene ... In fact, Cleveland has provided national
Jewish leadership in the person of Irving Kane, who is a leading
figure in the Council of Jewish Federation and Welfare funds, and
of Edward Ginsberg, who has now become general chairman of the
national United Jewish Appeal . . . Cleveland Jewry can also be
proud of the fact that it has Henry L. Zucker—one of the best experts
h the field of Jewish social work—as executive vice-president of the
federation . . . It was Zucker who developed most successfully the
Endowment Fund system, paving the way for this season in all Jew-
ish communities . . . It was also under Zucker that the Jewish Welfare
Fund Appeal in Cleveland raised in 1967 the all-time high of $6,500,-
000 for local, national and overseas Jewish needs, in addition to the
several million dollars contributed by Cleveland Jewry for Israel's
emergency needs during the June crisis . . . Sidney Z. Vincent,
executive director of the federation, is similarly one of the best-
known Jewish social workers in this country.

`Israel Lost Opportunity to Improve Economy'

LONDON (ZINS) — Commenting ports of Ashdod and Haifa, the

who are ready to die on the battle-
field for their homeland fail to
show an equal sacrificial zeal in
the economic field.
The newspaper stated that the
