Fishman, Shaye to Head '71 AJCampaign;
Re-Elect Schwartz Federation President
Meyer M. Fishman and Maxwell
M. Shaye are chairmen of the 1971
Allied Jewish Campaign-Israel
The announcement was made by
Alan E. Schwartz, president of the
Jewish Welfare Federation, who
stated: "We are facing the great-
est challenge and financial respon-
sibility that the Detroit Jewish
community has ever had. We are
rhareed with the survival of Is-
rael's People. In selecting Mr. Fish-
man and Mr. Shaye to bead this
monumental effort, we are choos-
ing two of our outstanding leaders.
These men have helped bring the
Allied Jewish Campaign to its
present high level through their
years of fund-raising effort. Our
community is looking to them to
lead it in the largest campaign
Detroit has ever seen."
Fislunan Is president of Star
Steel and Sapp y. Company,
Sesthbeid. He began lds work in
the Allied Jewish Campaign in
the real estate and building divi-
sion and was its Pre-campaign•
chairman -ir 1963.
400 per cent more than in 1967 1
Israel's citizens bear the heaviest
taxes in the world, which can pro-
duce only enough to cover defense
costs with precious little left over
for other minimum needs.
"This 1971 Campaign year is con-
sidered so critical that the State of
Israel has taken the unprecedented
step of asking all Israel-based or-
ganizations to stop or limit all
fund-raising for the year 1971.
"World Jewry is asked to assume
the entire respon•ihnity_uut just
part—of taking care of the 50,000
immigrants expected this year
from Eastern Europe, France,
Iran and dozens of other countries
as well as the tens of thousands
of, former refugees who still need
help. With almost nothing available
from Israel taxes, we will have to
take care of the home front"
Fishman and Shaye went on to
say that the amount needed from
American Jews in 1971 will be-dou-
ble the amount raised in 1970, and
they declared: "Doubling our giv-
ing may begin to mean a sacrifice
to some of us. So be it. To all of
us in these most critical days of
LsTael; their 'Survival (requires
sacrificial giving).' "

Israel Emergency Fund will raise

JERUSALEM (ZINS) — Rumors
that Israel Vice Premier Yigal
Allon met secretly in Switzerland
with a high-ranking Russian per-

by an Israel government spokes-
However political circles are con-
vinced that such an encounter took
place, despite the official denials.
In some quarters it is felt that
Israel cannot afford to ignore an
opportunity for dialogue between
Jerusalem and Moscow.
