Sarte Likens Soviet
to Czarist, Regime

PARIS - (ZINS) • — Jean Paul
Sarte, work!-renowned author, phil-
osopher and patron saint of the
New Left delivered a shattering
attack on Russia's treatment of
her Jews. Speaking at a mass meet-
ing in Paris that attracted a crowd
at more than 4,000, Sarte said
- that the- Kremlin is following the
'same disgraceful policy toward
RIISSISII Jews, as was the case
under the Czars when the Jewish
*mention was to have been solved in
three parts: Liquidate one third;
exile al second third; and convert
the remainder.
The Soviet authorities have even
exceeded their predecessors in
their harassment of Jews without
deciding which or the three meth-
ods is to dominate their policy.
Speaking of the trials that took
place recently, Satre remarked that
is the light of Gromyko's support
at the UN (in 1947) for the estab-
lishment of the Jewish State, Rus-
sia's present ban on immigration
of Jews to Israel is a betrayal of
his own principles. In the final an-
alysis, Russia will have no choice
other than to permit its Jews to
develop their own cultural and
spiritual life. -
"It would seem," Sartre added,
"that there are no more dedicated
Zionists anywhere, even in Israel
than the Jews in the Soviet Union
. who are fighting for their right to
live as Jews and to be reunited
with their brethren in Israel. There
is one basic difference between the
condition of Jews in Czarist Russia
and -that of the present-day Soviet
Union: In the days of the Czar,
,the Jews still clung to the hope
Rut the revolution would change
things, but today even that hope
is non-existent." ,

COMMUNAL AFFAIRS: Jewish communities in a number of cities
are now well on their way in a program to strengthen Jewish identity
among college youth. At the same time, communities all over the
country are currently studying concrete proposals by the Council of
Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds on this very important subject
which now commands the center of attention in communal life.
The CJFWF proposals are in no sense final -recommendations. At
this point they are only proposals for community discussion. Final
recommendations will be made at a meeting of the CJFWF board
of directors by mid-1971. It is to this meeting that the CJFWF's Task
Force on Jewish identity will bring its final report. In the meantime,
community leaders can propose their own suggestions.
The basis of the CJFWF proposals is the recommendation to estab-
lish a new agency which would be concerned with the full spectrum of
influences on Jewish identity. It is envisaged that this agency would
have to be assured financing in advance for a period of years. It is
to be provided with ample funds at the start, taking into consideration
that a period of several years is required to mount and test projects.
By getting its financing in advance, the new agency will not com-
pete for annual financing with other organizations which receive
funds from the federations. It is suggested that the new agency should
be guaranteed for at least six years an initial period of life—long
enough to serve its purpose seriously and competently and with results.
INCREASED ALLOCATIONS: While the CJFWF proposals are
now being discussed in the communities, about 20 communities have
already increased their allocations for college youth and faeulty pro-
grams to about $1,300,000 in 1970. This is $530,000 more than in the
previous year.
The largest increase was made by Los Angeles where the com-
munity raised its allocation to $233,000, compared with the sum of
$139,000 given the year before. The $233,000 was allocated through
the Hillel Foundation of the University of California, the local Hillel
Council and the local Jewish Youth Council.
The Detroit Jewish community was the second to increase its
allocation last year. It raised it to $179,000, which included $83,000
for Bet Midrash and $50,000 in scholarships. Montreal has increased
its allocation to $157,000, including $77,000 for Jewish studies,
$70,000 for Hillel and 510,000 for scholarships.
The Jewish communities in Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Balti-
more, Cleveland, Minneapolis and Pittsburgh have similarly raised
their allocations substantially. So did the communities in Rochester,
St. Louis, Essex`County, Hartford, Oakland, Dallas and Des Moines—
all indicating that the problem of financing activities to stimulate Jewish
identity on the campuses is very much on their minds.
The Federation of Jewish Philanthropies in New York took an
exceptional interest by granting $75,000 to a newly-formed Associa-
tion of Jewish College Youth.
INTENSIVE EFFORTS: All indications point to the fact that this
year will be a year of intensive efforts to bring Jewish college youth
and faculty nearer to Jewish values.
There is an enormous disquietude in the communities over Jewish
alienation, indifference and confusion regarding Jewish identity. There
also is the conviction that many Jews are "starving" Jewishly; that
many Jews are searching for different "life-styles"; and that there
is a need for "ideal models" to serve Jews in shaping their lives.
It is with this concern in mind that the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions and Welfare Funds has formed its Task Force on-Jewish Identity.
The proposal that a fund of perhaps S100,000,000 be set up by the
communities to enhance the quality of Jewish life in America was
voiced at the 1969 General Assembly of the CJFWF in a fervent
address by Gordon Zacks. It was fortified by a dramatic plea from
hundreds of Jewishly-committeed college students urging a reappraisal
by the communities of what they are doing to assure future commit-
ment to Judaism.
Whether there will be a fund of $100,000,000 established, as sug-
gested, remains to be seen. At present, the communities are heavily
committed to raise $400,000,000 this year for the needs of Israel
alone—and this is an unprecedented sum. However, there is no doubt
that the need for a fund to strengthen Jewish identity will be among
the items that the communities will deal with as urgent priorities.
The CJFWF proposals now under discussion in the communities
throughout the country are embracing wide goals for the planned new
The new_agency will not duplicate existing organizations. It will
be concerned basically with innovative projects and experiments.
