Federation Governors Approve
$50,000 in Direct Financial
Aid to Detroit's Needy Jews
The Jewish Welfare Federation board of governors has voted the Jewish
I Family and Children's Service a budget increase for immediate use in its
programs of direct financial assistance to Detroit Jews on marginal income.
The increase, which brings to $50,000 the funds available this year from
Federation for financial assistance grants to indigent clients, was voted
unanimously following a recommendation to the board by Federation's health
and welfare budget and planning division. The recommendation was pre-
sented by division chairman Arnold Faudman.
Faudman told The Jewish News that the approval of the budget increase
represents Federation's acceptance of a new concept: that of maintaining
an ongoing fund, above and beyond monies presently available, for those in
need. He called the approval of 550,000 "only the beginning" and said he
was "thrilled" at the growing awareness of this need.
Approval of the increase for 1974 funds came following a JFCS report
to Federation which documented a large number of cases involving individ-
uals and families on fixed and marginal income.
Faudman's presentation at the board meeting, noon Tuesday in the
Butzel Building, outlined to the governors the history of the JFCS report and
the Federation process which brought this communitywide issue before them.
Faudman told the governors, "With this money, the agency will be able
to enlarge the scope of its services which help people in financial need.
JFCS also will continue its study to define more clearly the perimeters of
the problem within our community.
"JFCS assures us that it will continue to be in closest touch with the
division regarding this matter," Faudman said, "providing us with the
opportunity for periodic review of the agency's situation and expenditures
in this area."
Following Faudman's report, JFCS President Mrs. Joseph H. Jackier

Granted 21 days in which to form a new cabinet to succeed Golda Meir's, Pre-
mier-designate Yitzhak Rabin of Israel has the difficult task of lining up a majority
in the 129-seat Knesset. Skepticism in most Israeli ranks points to the inevitability
of another popular election before the end of 1974. While Shimon Peres, who lost to
Rabin in a 298-254 vote, is expected to serve in the new cabinet, there is speculation
whether Foreign Minister Abba Eban and Deputy Prime Minister Yigal Allon will re-
main in the new government. The strong man, Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir, dom-
inated the situation by selecting the winner in the Labor Party's vote in favor of
Rabin on Monday.

JERUSALEM (JTA)—A Labor Party delegation called on President Ephraim
Katzir Tuesday to ask him officially to assign the task of forming a new government
to the party's new leader, Yitzhak Rabin. This was only a formality, however. As
leader of the party with the most Knesset seats-54—Rabin is the logical first choice
for the job of cabinet-building.

1,800 Payments on Campaign
Pledges in One Day Highlight
Detroit Jewry's Generosity
An amazing mark of generosity was registered here on April
15, when 1,800 contributors to the Allied Jewish Campaign-Israel
Emergency Fund—one in six of the 1974 contributors—responded
to billings on their pledges, in spite of the day being the last for
income tax payments.
Expressing pride in Detroit Jewry's philanthropic loyalties,
Louis Berry and I. William Sherr, co-chairmen of the cash col-
lection committee of the Jewish Welfare Federation, issued
another urgent appeal to the community for additional prompt
payments to assure the support so vitally needed for Israel in
the present emergencies.
Stating that by the end of the year the American dollar will
be worth $1.26 in Israel, due to the inflationary pressures, Berry
and Sherr indicated the urgency of receiving payments now.

"And I will turn the captivity
of my people Israel,
and they shall build the waste cities
and inhabit them;
and they shall plant
vineyards and drink the wine thereof ;

and eat the fruit of them.
And I will plant them
upon their land,
and they shall no more be plucked
up out of their land
which I have given them,
saith the Lord thy God."
