Rabbis representing every' major congregation in the metropolitan area banded -to-
gether in support of this year's Allied Jewish Campaign-Israel Emergency Fund.' Their
proclamation, published in The Jewish News on March ,21, declared, "It is morally incum-
bent . . to help, publicly and to the fullest possible extent, our brothers who are in need
here, in countries where they are repressed, and in Israel."
The- message also said that without visible support from the Jewish community the
Soviet Jews who now seek release may not be allowed to leave for lands of their choice. It
noted that world leaders measure Israel's strength by the support given..her by Diaspora
Jews: .

UJA Chairman States Beliefs

Frank R. Lautenberg,
general chairman of the
United Jewish Appeal, be-
lieves: the new era the world
is entering is fraught with
peril, but also opportunity
. .. especially for the Jew-
ish people. As we enter thi-s
new era, the link from each
generation to the next is the
cement which binds us.

Martin Buber said that

"men become what they are,
sons of God, by becoming
what they are, brothers of
their brothers." As we em-
bark upon this new era for
the Jewish people, we
pledge to the people of Israel
our unity in brotherhood.
The new Jewish assertive-
ness that we will need in
this era will pose new chal-
lenges to us as Jews and'as
human beings.
