Continuing High Goals Seen for U A by Paul Zuckerman

Paul Zuckerman, general chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, who headed one
of the most successful missions of campaign leaders and workers, said he is heartened
by advance giving for the 1975 campaign that there will be continuity in generosity and
Aznerican Jewry's determination to support and defend Israel.
Zuckerman, at extreme left, chats with Israel's President Ephraim Katzir during
the recent Prime Minister's Mission to Israel. Zuckerman led the mission, the most
successful in the United Jewish Appeal's history. At the conclusion of the three-day
exploration of Israel's hUmanitarian programs and after top-level conferences and
briefings, the 275 top Jewish communal leaders from the United States pledged
$15,000,000 to the 1975 campaign, an increase of $2,000,000 over their giving in the
emergency Yom. Kippur War campaign. Zuckerman said that the response of the
Americans to' the needs of Israel at this time is a "wonderful thing. American Jews
have reached a new plateau of understanding, a wisdom and understanding which
doesn't need war, blood, graves, widows, or orphans to bring us to know our responsi•

bilities. American Jews would rather give to prevent blood than to mop up blood."
Among the participants in the mission were the 1975 campaign chairmen of 55
federations and welfare funds, most of them in their early 30s and 40s, who told the
prime minister that in - America too, "the sons of the fathers" were accepting their
Jewish communal responsibility.
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, shown in center with Zuckerman, said that "life
in Israel for the next decade will be determined this year." Jewish Agency Treasurer,
Leon Dulzin, predicted an increase in Russian-Jewish immigration to Israel before the
end of this year.
In the photo at right, UJA leader Zuckerman asked these youngsters
young (
about their
new life in Israel. When newcomers arrive, the humanitarian services, funded primarily
through the Jewish Agency by the UJA, provide them with housing, clothing, and their
parents with the' necessary vocational and absorption programs. It takes about three
years before the typical immigrant family becomes an independent and productive
unit in the nation's economy.
