Kissinger Plans Hurt Israel?

Editor, The Jewish News:
Dr. Kissinger insists that
Israel must give the Sinai
desert to Egypt. What does
Egypt need with that desert
which is not a traditional
part of its country? They
need it for the only thing
they ever used it for: as a

Picks Letter
AtoZ

A perfect gift for any
occasion or just for the love
of giving. A slim, graceful
2" letter makes a charming
pendant with a 24" chain.

staging area for the invasion
of Israel.
Dr. Kissinger knows his
history and he knows what
he is doing. The State De-
partment has delayed ship-
ment of equipment to Israel
while shipping arms to the
Arab countries and arrang-
ing for France to augment
Russian arms to Egypt.
Further, Kissinger has
been urging congressmen
and senators to threaten
Israel with loss of American
support if Israel does not
give in.
As a part of his Middle
East "peace" campaign he
allowed the PLO into New
York. When Waldheim
tried to bring the Vietcong
to the United Nations, Dr.
Kissinger said no — the
United States will not is-
sue visas. But for Arafat it
was different. Except for
our vote in the United Na-
tions for the record, we
made no real effort to keep
them out.
It matters not to our
State Department how hei-
nous their crirnes. What
does matter is that King
Faisal, Saudi Arabia's abso-
lute monarch, supports the
terrorists and he controls a
good portion of the world's
oil supply.

Kissinger's "peace" pro-
gram after Israel's defense
lines are destroyed is to
force them to accept those
that murder their children
and promise to annihilate
their country.

MARCH OF TIME: The pressures of a changing
world and of changing Jewish needs are mounting now
upon Jewish federations in this country. They are also
mounting upon the Council of Jewish Federations and Wel-
fare Funds, the central body of the organized Jewish com-
munities in the United States and Canada.
As the association of these communities, the CJFWF is
the joint instrument of what is now a $725 million enter-
prise. That amount raised by the Federations, together with
other income from the latter's beneficiaries, actually repre-
sents total annual expenditures of over $1.5 billion, involv-
ing many problems.
Priorities are changing. New needs are emerging. Infla-
tion is playing no small role in budgets of organizations and
institutions depending to a great extent on allocations. Lo-
cal federations are now turning more and more for in-
creased advice and guidance to the CJFWF.
CJFWF GUIDANCE: The Council of Jewish Federa-
tions and Welfare Funds, which serves close to 800 commu- -
nities embracing 95 percent of the Jewish population in the
U.S. and Canada, is alert to the changes which time imposes
on Jewish communal life. Through visits of its staff to indi-
vidual communities, it helps them to tailor assistance to the
concerns and circumstances of each community. One of the
steps on which the CJFWF now lays special stress is to as-
sist federations in developing endowment funds. Endow-
ment funds are considered potential resources of hundreds
of millions of dollars that can be attracted in gifts to the
Jewish communities, beyond the contributions to annual
campaigns. They can thus be of special benefit for emer-
gency needs and creative services.
_ To help the communities in adjusting their allocations
and in achieving the greatest impact on the most press-
ing needs — the CJFWF provides the local federations with
anaylses of the programs of 60 major national and overseas
agencies to which the communities grant funds. Its Large
City Budgeting Conference reviews the budgets of 26 major
national Jewish agencies — including the American Jewish
Congress, American Jewish Committee, Anti-Defamation
League, United Hias, ORT, Jewish Telegraphic Agency —
and makes the necessary recommendations to all federa-
tions for allocations.
Budget information is provided by the CJFWF to com-
munity leaders also on the United Jewish Appeal, United
Israel Appeal and the Joint Distribution Committee. The
CJFWF also stimulates active participation of community
leaders in the Jewish Agency for Israel, which receives its
funds from the federations through the United Jewish Ap-
peal for immigration, absorption and other human needs in
Israel.
DOMESTIC PROBLEMS: The major domestic prob-
lems include strengthening the quality of Jewish life, espe-
cially in the field of Jewish education and Jewish family
relations, and care for the constantly increasing number of
Jewish aged.
Enrollment in Jewish schools has been declining. It is
now affected by the economic crisis which prevents many
parents from sending their children to Jewish schools
where tuition is comparatively high. Similarly, Jewishness
is declining in the Jewish family. The fact that there have
been no comprehensive, systematic programs for the pur-
pose of strengthening the quality of Jewish life in the Jew-
ish home is considered a serious gap in communal life.
The CJFWF is now seeking, through its Institute for
Jewish Life, to create and develop innovative programs ad-
dressed to gaps and inadequacies in Jewish education, in
the Jewish family and home, and in other fields of Jewish
life. It also assists communities in establishing college
youth and faculty.

Yiddish, the language
which will ever bear witness
to the violence and murder
inflicted on us, bear the
marks of our expulsions
from land to land, the lan-
guage which absorbed the
wails of the fathers, the la-
ments of the generations,
the poison and bitterness of
history, the language whose
precious jewels are the un-
dried, uncongealed Jewish
tears.
