Jewish Students
Do Repair Work

NEW YORK (JTA) A
total of 45 Jewish high
school juniors and seniors
have completed seven-
week volunteer assign-
ments of repair work in
poverty areas in a 26-
year-old summer prog-
ram sponsored by the
American Jewish Society
for Service.
The youngsters rebuilt
and renovated dilapi-
dated sections of the
three work areas to which
they were sent, repairing
porches, mending leaky
roofs, painting facades
and interiors of rundown
homes, and scraping and
rebuilding decayed floors
of homes of the poor.
Each group was invited
by local self-help com-
munity groups in Char-
lottesville, Va., Rochester
N.Y., and Grand Rapids,
Mich.

thur Hertzberg, of Col-
umbia University.
The preparatory works
include studies of both
groups and individuals
who have played signific-
ant roles on the Zionist
scene in the United
States, ranging from
monographs on the State
Department in the
Roosevelt Administra-
tion, to others on Hadas-
sah, Louis Lipsky, Felix
Warburg and Felix Adler.
Included are analyses of
religion and secularism in
the World Zionist move-
ment, the American
Jewish leftism in the
1920's and the question of
the Jewish national home
in international law.
The first of these studies
being prepared for publi-
cation are those dealing
with the Truman administ-
ration's Palestine policy
and American Jewish
leadership (by Zvi Ganin)

and Allon Gal's examina-
tion of Louis D. Brandeis'
Zionist activity.
"The whole field of
Zionist history is in a pro-
cess of extra-ordinary ex-
pansion in Israel itself,
and in the United States,
Britain and France," ac-
cording to Dr. Halpern,
"and the work • being
stimulated by the Zionist
history project, here and
in Israel, is a major con-
tributing and formative
factor in this growth.
Prof. Halpern is prepar-
ing the first half of the
synthetic history from
the beginning of Zionist
effort in the United
States to 1937, and Prof.
Hertzberg is writing on
the period from 1837 to
1976.

Federation's Role
Topic of Booklet

NEW YORK — Federa-
tion of Jewish Agencies
Associate Director
Charles Miller has re-
cently written a
brochure, "An Introduc-
tion to the Jewish Feder-
ation", which is published
by the Council of Jewish
Federations and Welfare
Funds.
This booklet, the first
work of this nature to be
written on a national
level, explains the basic
structure and develop-
ment of federations in
major American cities.
The focus is on certain
broad and basic aspects of
federation, and does not
attempt to deal in depth
with the institution.
"The aim is to help the
person who is a beginner
in federation activity,
whether as fund raiser,
board member, con-
tributor or service volun-
teer, and to help reach
young people, Jewish or-
ganization members and
others who wish to have a
fuller understanding of
federation," Miller em-
phasizes.
Copies of the brochure
are available from the
Council of Jewish Federa-
tions and Welfare Funds,,
315 Park Ave. South, New
York, N.Y. 10010.

Vocational Service
Cuts Back Staff

MILWAUKEE (JTA) —
The Milwaukee Jewish
Vocational Service has
been forced to dismiss 21
full-time staff members
and stop accepting new
clients because of an
eight percent budget cut
this year by its state and
county funding agencies.
Currently about 25 per-
sons have been applying
for service monthly. For
the time being, they are
being placed on a waiting
list. The agency may also
have to cut back on its
"Meals on Wheels" prog-
ram if additional funds
are not found. "Meals on
Wheels," which has an
annual budget of
$100,000, delivers hot
meals seven days a week
to about 70 elderly shut-
in Jews.
