UJA INNOVATION: Something new is 'being added by the United
Jewish Appeal in planning its 1969 campaign. It is something which
aims to close the communication gap between American Jewry
Israel and to present to the Jews in this country, with full force, the
dangers now faced by Israel.
Many American Jews are under the false impression that the
situation in Israel is no longer as serious as it was on the eve of the
Six-Day War. The contrary is true. No one can predict when a new
Arab war against Israel may break out, but the atmosphere in Israel
is now full of nervous tension in view of increased Arab terrorism and
constant war threats by Arab rulers. Soviet incitement against Israel
adds no little to the restiveness.
To bring the present serious picture in Israel to the full attention
of American Jewry and to make American Jews aware of the fact
that Israel is still facing an emergency situation, the UJA is planning
a number of weekly shuttle flights between the U.S. and Israel, with
one plane or more leaving every Sunday with lay leaders from various
communities, as well as with executive directors of these communi-
ties. These special flights will be maintained for a number of weeks.
The stay in Israel for the participants will be only one week but
it will be a crowded one. From the moment of landing until the hour
of departure, the participants will be busy seeing things, listening to
briefings of top Israeli leaders — including military leaders — and
traveling through parts of the country they have never seen before.
All this will provide them with the information they will convey with
conviction during the 1969 UJA campaign in their communities.
It is anticipated that about 2,000 lay leaders from all parts of the
U.S. will join the "weekly special" flights of the UJA. The special
planes which will pick them up in New York on Sundays will bring
them back to New York the following Sunday and pick up another
group for the next flight on the same day. Fare and hotel accommo-
dations will, of course, be paid by each participant but the cost will
be minimal, under a special UJA arrangement. For technical reasons,
the flights will be limited to "men only." However, there may be one
flight with the participants being "women only."
The UJA will conduct its 1969 campaign under the slogan "Israel
Must Live." The emphasis will be laid upon the fact that while the
Arabs can afford to lose a war and still remain on their land, for
Israel to lose the war would mean liquidation of the Jewish State and
annihilation of its people.
