ice; Albert Asher, executive
director of the Jewish Voca-
tional Service and Commu-
nity Workshop; and Morton
Plotnick, of the Jewish
Community Center.
A slate of candidates was
announced for the May elec-
tion to the Council's Execu-
tive committee.
Lerner began his descrip-
tion of the work of the Re-
settlement Service by noting
that the agency was started
in the 1930s to help accom-
modate refugees from Naz-
ism in Europe, and later the
refugees who emigrated to
the United States after
World War II from the dis-
placed persons camps.
Since that post-war pe-
riod, the service had been
kept in operation to help the
trickle of immigrants who
came as a result of the Hun-
garian and Cuban revolu-
• tions, as well as occasional
small groups of emigres
from Eastern European na-
tions.

Soviet Jewish emigra-
tion began in the mid-
1960s after Premier Kosy-
gin stated that the -USSR
had no objection to allow-
ing Soviet citizens to reu-
nite their families with
relatives living overseas.

Pesah Supplement Focuses on Hunger

The Jewish Community
Council and the Rabbinical
Commission of Metropoli-
tan Detroit have issued a
thematic statement de-
signed to be read as part of
Passover services, after Ho
Lachmo Anyo.
The statement is the re-
sult of an interfaith effort
to call to public attention
during Passover and Easter
celebrations those in our
country and around the
world who are enslaved by
hunger and want.
The statement reads in
part:
"Economic desperation
and real hunger is now a
reality for millions abroad
and in our country. Scrip-
ture teaches us that we are
not only our brother's
keeper but also that we are
responsible for the stranger
that sojourneth in the land.
