Israel Receives Third of JDC Budget
of $23 Million for Welfare Projects

NEW YORK—More than one-
third of the Joint Distribution Com-
mittee's budget of $23,000,000 will
be spent in Israel on health, wel-
fare and education projects, Louis
Broido, JDC chairman, told the
United Jewish Appeal's study mis-
The 300-member mission was
visiting the JDC/Malben Home
for the Aged in Rishon Le'Zion,
one of the 10 institutions main-
tained by the JDC in Israel.
Broido noted that the JDC, which
derives the bulk of its funds from
the annual UJA fund-raising cam-
paigns, expends another third of
its budget in Europe and the re-
maining third in Moslem coun-
tries and other areas.
While the most dynamic aspect
of JDC's far-flung operations is
In Israel, where some 90,000
men, women and children bene-
fit from JDC projects, Broido
also cited assistance programs
carried out in other lands.
During its 21 years of operations
in Israel, JDC/Malben has assist-
ed more than 250,000 aged, chron-
ically ill and handicapped at a
cost of 5179,000,000.
"In an effort to accelerate its
health and welfare services among
the general population, JDC/Mal-
ben initiated last year the estab-
lishment of the voluntary Associa-
tion for the Planning and Develop-
ment of Services for the Aged,"
he said. "JDC had undertaken to
provide half of the association's
five - year budget of 30,000,000
pounds (58,571,000), which will be
used to help the local communi-
ties to construct 10 regional geria-
tric centers. Cooperating agencies
are contributing the other half of
the budget.
In addition to accommodating
about 100 persons each, the centers
will provide a series of community
services for those aged who wish
to remain at home."
JDC/Malben has increased by
fivefold its allocations to help
the country's handicapped chil-
dren, Broido stated. Child devel-
opment centers are being set up
in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Tel
Hashomer and Beersheba.
Two pilot programs to assist
deaf and hard-of-hearing children
in the Tel Aviv school system also
are being supported by JDC/Mal-
ben, he said.
He noted that another major
project was the construction of a
new geriatric and rehabilitation
wing for the chronically ill in
Jerusalem's Shaarei Zedek Hos-

In the field of mental health,
Broido pointed out that JDC/Mal-
ben, through the Psychiatric Trust
Fund, has spent more than 7,000,-
000 pounds ($2,030,000) to improve
and expand the country's mental
health facilities. The nation's first
comprehensive mental health cen-
ter will open soon in Jaffa.

Israel Education Fund
Credited With Building
of 45 High Schools

rael Education Fund, founded in
the United States some five years
ago, has so far made possible the
building of 45 high schools in
The chairman of the fund, Char-
les J. Beasley, told the Jewish Te-
legraphic Agency correspondent
here that the fund raised $35,-
000,000 for this purpose. The local
authorities, in whose jurisdictions
the schools were built, contributed
similar amounts, be said.
The fund's program calls for
the construction of another 30
high schools, five junior col-
leges and about 200 pre-kinder-
gartens, Beasley added.
He is now visiting Jerusalem for
the inauguration of the latest, and
most extensive project undertaken
by the education fund, the "Den-
mark Comprehensive Schoo I,"
which cost close to $3,000,000.
Nearly half of it, $1,400,000 was
received from 14 individual don-
ors in the U.S. who paid $100,-
000 each.
The school is intended to com-
memorate the saving of the Jewish
population of Denmark from the
Nazis by the Danish people in
World War II.

James Buckley's Pull
Among Jews Viewed
With Some Surprise

NEW YORK (JTA) — In the
aftermath of the election cam-
paign's last hurrahs and with the
final vote available for all the
assembly districts in the city, many
Jews were jarred by votes Con-
servative Party senator-elect James
L. Buckley received generally and
in areas in particular where there
is a large Jewish population.
This reaction was typified by
several persons interviewed on
television who expressed amaze-
ment that "there are so many
conservatives in my neighbor-
While there is no way of break-
ing down the voting in any area
on an ethnic basis, the election
figures are revealing in such areas
as Boro Park and Crown Heights
in Brooklyn, where there is a
large lower-income Jewish popula-
In both areas, there is racial
tension between Jews and the non-
white population.
In the Crown Heights-East
Flatbush assembly district,
Buckley received 12,253 votes
compared to 16,811 for his
Democratic opponent Richard L.
Ottinger and 6,117 for his Re-
. publican. opponent Charles 'E.
In Boro Park, Buckley got
10,775 votes compared to 17,309
and 6,192 for Ottinger and Goodell
In three assembly disrticts in
the Bronx with large middle-in-
come Jewish populations, Buckley
received a total of 48,488, and his
two opponents a total in the three
districts of 82,243.
There was little doubt in the
minds of several political analysts
about the "Jewish vote" Buckley
received in these areas. But, they
stressed, the Jewish vote alone
did not account for his high elec-
toral pile-up. Other white ethnic
also threw their support behind
the law and order candidate.

This could be
the high point
of your
European trip.

More people fly Lufthansa to Germany than
any other airline. They enjoy the European service,
the European comfort, and the matchless European
cuisine (including kosher food—if you mention it
when you make the reservation).
Next time you go to Europe, ask your travel agent
to book you on the Lufthansa 747. It's like having a
night oh the town in Europe—before you get there.
