News

Dr. Jack Stanzler, Flint
United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign chairman, announced
that Sen. William Proxmire
will be guest speaker at the
1973 inaugural dinner to be
held Thursday at Temple
Beth El.
The dinner will begin with
cocktails at 6:30 p.m.
Dr. Stanzler said that "As
Russian Jews keep pouring
into Israel, our responsibili-
ties as UJA leaders increase.
A total of $35,000 is needed
for the transportation and
initial absorption of each
family. At the rate they are
coming, it's not difficult to
see that UJA must raise far
more than it ever has before
. . . just to meet this com-
mitment to Jewish survival."
Dr. Stanzler stated that
"the (Soviet) doors are now
open — we cannot wait and
hope that they will remain

In many ways, Flint has
demonstrated its concern for
young people. The funds re-
quired to do this are derived
to a great degree from the
United Jewish Appeal drive.
To provide youngsters with
the chance to learn and en-
joy the richness and rele-
vance of Judaism, the Jewish
Community Council formed
a Jewish education commis-
sion and youth committees.
The Jewish education com-
mission, founded to raise the
quality of Jewish education
for all children in the com-
munity, is chaired by Mrs.
Milton Siegel. The committee
consists of Dr. William Ber-
nard, Dr. Saul Gorne, Mrs.
Sam Gotlib, Louis Kasle,
Mrs. Michael Pelavin, Dr.
Leon Rosky, Dr. Arnold
Schaffer, Dr. Jack Stanzler,
Rabbi Gilbert Kollin, Rabbi
Gerald Schuster, Pinhas
Fellus, Eugene Griffel and
Alfred Klein.
This commission has:
1. Financially aided the
schools of both religious in-
stitutions as the costs of
education have skyrocketed.
2. Encouraged and finan-
cially
supported
teacher
training.
3. Provided consultants to
evaluate programs.
4. Provided a forum in
which some correlation of
efforts between institutions
has been established. The
combined elective school pro-
gram was enhanced by this
committee.
5. Sought meaningful Jew-
ish educational experiences
beyond confirmation age. A
first year of Jewish studies,
in conjunction with the Uni-
versity of Michigan is being
completed. There is a grow-
ing concern for a high school
program in Flint.
6. Attempted to encourage
the use of the summer for
creative Jewish educational
experiences.
Camperships
are available via matching
funds, and a new dimension
was added with the Israel
program to encourage visits
and studies in Israel.
A combined elective pro-
gram offering a wide variety
of courses has been devel-
oped, initially by the board
of education of Congregation
Beth Israel, and now run by
a board made up of mem-
bers of both congregations.
Mrs. Marshall Cossman and

Mrs. Milton Siegel co-chair'
this board. Some courses are
designed to prepare each
child for his trip to Israel.
For younger children, the
Council provides camping,
experience under the direc-
tion of Mrs. David Megdell.
Mrs. Megdell will return to
Camp M'accabee again this
summer.
The Council also supports
athletic teams — primarily
bowling, baseball and basket-
ball. Carl Rittman is coach.
Flint has provided a youth
center which the teens pick-
ed, cleaned up, repaired and
decorated. They use it in
increasing numbers. A ski
trip is one of the activities.
Gerald Rittman supervises
the youth center.
Malcolm Isaacs, Dr. Mor-
ton Stanley and Carl Rittman
head the Council committee
on youth activities. They re-
port that this phase of activi-
ties could be even better if
more funds were available
for programing.
Youngsters also have been
encouraged to take part in
traditionally adult commu-
nity activities which interest
them. Brad Shapiro is co-
chairman of the sub-commit-
tee on Soviet Jewry of' the
community relations commit-
tee.
David Bernard and Gail
Wolin were sent to the gen-
eral assembly of the Council
of Jewish Federations and
Welfare Funds. They had a
chance to meet other young
Jewish leaders from all over
the world.
When concern grew about
Arab propaganda on campus,
hundreds of college students
began to receive the news-
letter "Operation Masada."
They began to receive latest
information and answers to
the propaganda they were
exposed to. The Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry
and the North American
Jewish Student Appeal also
received financial help from
Council. The prisoner of con-
science medallions seen
around Flint came from
these organizations.
Recognizing that the needs
of Hillel groups could not be
met by Bnai Brith alone, the
community sent funds to
University of Michigan
Hillel, one of the most suc-
cessful programs in Amer-
ica. Council also recently
voted to send a committee

to study the needs of Hillel
at Lansing.
As the interest of young-
sters has grown in Jewish
life, costs also have increas-
ed. This year, the budget and
allocations committee and
the Council were forced to
make difficult choices in
various areas because of
compelling needs locally and
internationally.
