Stollman Urges Strong Campaign Support for Israel

Federation Discusses 1975 Budget Request Areas

The Jewish Welfare Feder-.
ation held its 1975 pre-cam-
paign budget conference at
the main Jewish Community
Center Wednesday evening to
give the community an oppor-
tunity to hear the major allo-
cation requests for funds to
be raised from the 1975 Allied
Jewish Campaign and to ask
questions.
Federation ,President Man-
dell L. Berman explained to
the audience of approximate-
ly 100 that the forinula for al-
locating funds from the Cam-
paign has been established
over a period of years, but
that the formula offers flexi-
bility, and that suggestions
- and comments would, be thor-
oughly reviewed.
Requests totalling $5.3 Mil-
lion for the major areas of
community relations; health
and welfare agencies; educa-
tional programs and local
capital needs for construction.
were given a general review.
-
Both local and national needs
in these areas were discussed.
National and overseas -ag-
encies have in the past re-
ceived an amount equal to
the local total, another re-
maining majority of the funds
going to the Israel Emerg-
ency Fund.
Avern L. Cohn, associate
chairman of the community
relations division, said that
there have been many chang-
es in the last two years war-
ranting increases in Jewish
Community Council and na-
tional allocations because of a
"potential" rise in anti-Semi-
tism.
Cohn said that on a national
scale Jewish agencies would
like to advertise more and do
public opinion polling to in-
sure continued support for
Israel and combat anti-Semi-
tism.
Arnold,Faudm an, chairman
of the health and welfare di-
vision, outlined a request for
a 62 percent increase in sup-
port to $2.6 million for the
local agencies, including
Jewish Family and Children's
Service, the Fresh Air Soci-
ety, the Home for the Aged,
the Resettlement Service, Vo-
cational Service and other
agencies.

munity Services has , not in-

Yeshivot 'Seek Aid,
May Close Facilities

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The
heads of yeshivas in Jerusa-
lem warned government offi-
cials that their institutions
would be forced to close down
unless more financial aid was
forthcoming.
The appeal was made to
representatives of the Reli-
gious Affairs Ministry. An
official promised that Minis-
ter Yitzhak Rafael would ask
Finance Minister Yehoshua
Rabinowitz for increased gov-
ernment stipends to help sup-
port the religious schools.
In addition to seeking more
money from the government,
the yeshivas are planning to
launch an international "cri-
sis appeal." The appeal will
be directed to public institu-
tions and individual donors
here and abroad.

tions in recent years, Faud-
man said, and the economy
and inflation have necessi-
tated the large increase in
the health and welfare re-
quest.
Local and national educa-
tion needs were outlined by
Stanley Frankel, associate
chairman of the education di-
vision, •and David Handle-
man, chairman, outlined the
capital needs request.
Handle ma n said that

$850,000 should continue to
be provided yearly for capital
needs. He said the Federation
has committed $4 million to
the building of the new Jew-
ish Community Center at
Drake and 15 Mile, and that
the Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's 'Service will have to
be relocated when the Center
moves.
He also predicted the need
for 'additional facilities for the
aged similar to both the

Tribute to Journalist Joel Cang

By JOSEPH FRAENKEL

Jewish News Special London

Correspondent
Joel Cang who died in Lon-
don Nov. 27 at age '75, was
a journalist for more than 50
years, writing articleS, edi-
torials, comments and re-
ports, mainly on East Euro-
pean Jewry and political
events.
He was the Warsaw cor-
respondent for the Manches-
ter Guardian and The Times,
editor of The Polish Jewish
Observer and of Focus on
Soviet Jewry, deputy editor
of the Jewish Chronicle and
co-editor of The Jew-ish Jour-
nalist.
His Polish Jewish Observ-
er published articles and
stories for the first time in
English by the Yiddish poet
Izik Manger.
-
He always remembered the
Yiddish shtetl, near Lublin,
where he was born and often
spoke about its traditions and
culture. During the Second
World War he participated
in discussions with Dr. L
Schwarzbart and S. Zygiel-
bojm in London, both mem-
bers of the Polish National
Council, and with others, in
drafting a program for a lib-
erated,. free Poland, where
Jews and Poles could• live to-
gether in harmony and peace.
But the Nazis killed the
Jews and the remnants have
had to leave Communist Po-
land.
Cang belonged to the jour-
nalists interested in Jewish
affairs. He was an active
member of the National
Council of the British Section
of the World Jewish Con-
gress, founder of the Asso-
ciation of Jews of Polish Ori-
gin in Great Britain, London
member of the Yivo Institute
for Jewish Research and of
the Association of Jewish
Journalists as well as of the
Yiddish Committee of the
World Jewish Congress.
Cang had known journalists
arriving in various countries
as refugees who suffered
hardship. He, therefore, want-
ed to establish an interna-
tional fund to help journal-
ists in need and publish their
books.
He also suggested the es-
tablishment of a "Press In-
stitute" in Jerusalem where
all -Jewish newspapers and
journals could be "gathered,
catalogued and made ready
for use by the Jewish his-
torian."
Cang was particularly in-
terested in helping Russian
Jews and journalists. He vis-
ited Russia and was deeply
moved in the Moscow Syna-
gogue when he saw a yahr-

together with 25 Soviet Yid-
dish writers, was shot on
Stalin's orders in 1952.
He was one of the few in
London, who, years ago, de-
manded demonstrations on
behalf of Russian Jewry.
He never forgot East
European Jewry. He pub-
lished "The Silent Millions,"
a history of the Jews in the
Soviet Union, and he left a
manuscript on the contribu-
tion of Polish Jews to Anglo-
Jewish life.

Israel, Romania
Sign Food Pact

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Israel and Romania signed a
new agricultural cooperation
agreement in Jerusalem Wed-
nesday at the end of a four
day visit by Romanian Food
and Agriculture Minister
Angelo Miculescum.
The agreement, signed for
Israel by Agriculture Minis-
ter Aharon Uzan, provides'
for exchange of experts and
of technical knowhow, and
for increased Israeli 'export
to Romania_ of citrus or irri-
gation equipment.
One 'provision calls for Is-
rael to send several hundred
sheep along with expert sheep
breeders to •aid Romanian
breeders increase t h e i r
sheeps' milk yield—currently
only one third of the Israeli
aveiage.
Israel also agreed to pro-
vide six scholarships for
Romanian post-graduate
agronomists to spend time in
Israeli agricultural institu-
tions.
The Romanian minister
spent part of his visit at
Kibutz Yifat, as guest of
former Agriculture Minister
Haim Gvati who invited him
to Israel.

A young critic is like a
boy with a gun; he often fires
at every living thing he sees;
he thinks only of his own
skill; not of the pain he is
giving.

Home for the Aged and Fed-
eration Apartments.
Phillip Stollman gave a
brief report on the interna-
tional situation and the need
for continued support for Is-
rael. "The needs are so
great," he said, "I don't
think its possible to say that
we can do the entire job. But
at the same time we have a
great responsibility.
"American Jews are the
only friends that remain to.
Israel. Our concern must be
Israel," he said, "because Is-
rael is our, very survival."
Members of the audience
raised questions on a variety
of areas:
Dr. Peter Shifrin asked if
any thought had been given
to changing the 50-50 local-
national formula that has
been followed in the past if
the Campaign does not reach
its goal. He argued that the
formula should be retained.
Other questions and com-
ments were made about
funds for more group resi-
dences for the Jewish retard-
ed, 'criticism of the heavy
commitment to the building
of the new- Jewish Center, a
request for improvements for
the 10 Mile Center, and the
need for a local speakers
bureau to combat propa-
ganda.
Rabbi Seymour Rosen-
bloom of Adat Shalom Syna-
gogue, who is a member of
the board of Hillel . Day
School, requested = that the
Hebrew Day Schools be giv-
en far more funding than
they _presently receive.
He said that AJC-IEF allo-
cations support the local af-
ternoon schools at a rate of
$300 per student, while the
day school students are sup-
ported at the rate of $100 per
student.
