Throughout history, whetherJews were living in Israel or long-
ing to re-establish Israel or striving to keep Israel, they have
suffered life's greatest loss — life itself. For the sacrifice even-
of precious life has meant their survival.
In this way they persevere. They progress. In the face of
4,000 years of persecution and unspeakable periods of mur-
derous oppression, they continue to live and build and create
Throughout history, this has been Israel. Not merely a na-
tion, but the dream of an exiled and tormented people— a vis-
ion of a just and peaceful society for all men.
The United Jewish-Appeal is part of that dream.
•Facing daily the renewed threats of annihilation and the
," proven threats of sabotage, terrorism and attack, the people of
Israel devote themselves to defense. It takes their energy.
Their resources. Their young men and women. Their money.
And while it does, our continuing job is to make the dream
these people are fighting for worth living for.
To settle and train the thousands of immigrants who come
to Israel seeking freedom from persecution.
To build schools, clinics and housing for immigrants.
To counsel, educate and guide the young.
To heal and care for the sick, the handicapped and the aged.
These are not unique tasks. They are basic. But in light of
the continuing struggle for peace, which casts its shadow over
an entire people, they take on major historic and humane con-
For how one survives has always been as important to the
Jew as whether he survives.
Every year sees more and more immigrants finding their
way to and in Israel. More are trained and becoming produc-
tive. More are assimilated into the mainstream and becom-
ing integral parts of a thriving though threatened society. Ev-
ery year a Jewish life will be rescued. A school will be given
books. A handicapped child will be rehabilitated. A society
worthy of blood that has.flowed in its defense will be closer
But our job will not be over so long as there is one Jewish
life, no matter where, that is not free from injustice and pain.
Free to pursue the future in peace.
