Rabbi Kagan's 'Thought 'Status • of the Social
Security Trust Funds'
for Week' Published

"A Thought for the Week," a
collection of short essays adapted
from the works of the Lubavitcher
Rebbe, Menachem M. Schneerson,
has been translated by Detroit rab-
bi Yitschak M. Kagan.
The collection, in the spirit of
Hasidic thought, is based on the
"sedras," or weekly portions of the
Tora reading.
They first ap-
peared as a
series of book-
ets and were
ires -ented at
;rester length on
he weekly "Ln-
avitch Jewish
[our," moder-
ted by Rabbi
Kagan on station
Rabbi Bagais
IWKNR.
The "Thoughts" now are dis-
; tributed throughout the United
States and Canada and also are
published in several newspapers,
in Australia as well A French
translation is nearing completion
by the Paris Lubavitch office, as
are Italian and Dutch transla-
tions in Milan and Rotterdam,
respectively.
Rabbi Kagan, a native of Lon-
don, studied at the Chab Lubavitch
Yeshiva in Israel, then at the Cen-
tral Talmudical Academy of Luba-
vitch in New York. He was ordain-
ed in 1965 at the Rabbinical Col-
lege of Canada in Montreal. He is
currently public relations director
of the Detroit Lubavitch Organiza-
tion.
Married to the former Rachel
Nelkin of Montreal, Rabbi Kagan
is the father of a son.

Sam F. Test, Social Security dis-
trict manager in the Detroit-North-
west office, said that a new book-
let, "What's the Status of the
Social Security Trust Funds?", is
available at the Detroit-Northwest
Social Security District Office.
• "The booklet," he said, "explains
how the Social Security Retirement,
Survivors, Disability and Medicare
programs are financed, and gives a
report on the income and outgo
of the four trust funds out of
which benefits are paid; the
amount of cash reserves in each;
and the expected operations and
status of the funds in the years
-
ahead."
The 16-page booklet is a sum-
mary of more detailed reports on
the four funds, submitted to the
Congress earlier this year. The re-
ports show that the Social Security
program continues to be both
financially and actuarially sound,
Test said.
