Hadassah Raises $29 million,
Re-Elects Bernice Tannenbaum

NEW YORK (JTA)—Ha-
dassah, the largest
Amen's voluntary organiza-
tion in the United States,
with a reported 360,000
members, raised more than
$29 million this year, it was
announced at the closing
session of the four-day 63rd
annual national convention
meeting at the New York
Hilton Hotel.
Frieda S. Lewis, national
treasurer, reported that,
even though the 360,000
members responsible for
fund-raising achieved a re-.
markable feat, in light of
the recession and inflation,
Hadassah is forced to
achieve higher collections
for 1977-78, because of high-
er costs and increased serv-
ices.
The convention, attended
by 3,500 delegates, repre-
senting 1,550 chapters and
groups in the U.S. and
Puerto Rico, voted the fol-
lowing quotas (1977-78) for
Hadassah's health, educa-
tion and rehabilitation and
land reclamation services:
In Israel: Hadassah Medi-
cal Organization (HMO)
maintenance — $9,000,000;
HMO building and devel-
opment—$3,333,333; Youth
Aliya—$2,300,000; Hadassah
Israel education services
(community college,
Brandeis-Seligsberg Coni-
prehensive High School and
the Vocational Guidance In-
stitute)—$1 million; Jewish
National Fund—$700,000. In
the United States, the budg-
et is more than $3,400,000.
This includes Hadassah's
adult and youth education
programs, and leadership
development.
Rose E. Matzkin, HMO
national chairman, reported
that in addition to the Ha-
dassah University Hospital
on Mount Scopus with its
Guggenheim Pavilion for
Rehabilitation Medicine,
which opened last year,
other new facilities include:
the Moshe Sharett Institute
of Oncology, in operation
since May; the new region-
al Neo-Natal Center at
Mount Scopus, and the Law-
rence and Aleen Schacht
Day School at Ein Karem.
Faye L. Schenk, building
and development chairman,
said, "After a year in
which major construction
has been completed, this is
now a time of opening serv-
ices.
"The chapters have ful-
filled their three-year $10
million extra building
quota; the Burns Unit at
Ein Karem is ready; the
Schacht Day Nursery for
(::ciildren of staff is equipped
and will open in Septem-
ber; and increased com-
puterization is expanding to
include medical, research,
diagnostic and therapeutic
services. The cost of an ad-
ditional new computer, with
training of technicians, will
nin about $700,000, of which
part will be paid from a
ei $750,000 United States
Agency for International De-
velopment grant."
Bernice S. Tannenbaum
was re-elected national pres-
ident of Hadassah.

BERNICE TANNENBAUM
Mrs. Tannenbaum told
the 3,500 delegates that Ha-
dassah will be asked to
take a position on the issues
of religious pluralism in Is-
rael, whether aliya is a mat-
ter of free choice or an im-
perative, and the structure
of the World Zionist Organi-
zation and Congress at the
29th World Zionist Congress
in February.
"Since the founding of Is-
rael, a surprising new de-
bate emerged on what role
organized Zionism would
have to play in light of the
creation of a sovereign Jew-
ish state," Mrs. Tan-
nenbaum said. "Hadassah
has clearly defined its role:
we belong to the World Con-
federation of United Zion-
ists which is completely di-
vorced from any of the polit-
ical parties in Israel."
This does not mean that
Hadassah is apolitical or
non-political, she observed.
"Zionism is, by definition, a
political movement and Ha-
dassah is involved daily
with the politics of Zionist
life. Both our confederation
and Hadassah trace our
ideological roots to the phi-
losophy of general Zionism,
which opens its doors to di-
verse ideas, united by ac-
ceptance of the Jerusalem
Program."
Mrs. Matzkin reported
that arrangements have
been concluded for the man-
,.ufacture and worldwide dis-
tribution of an ointment
which is, a promising treat-
ment for some forms of
skin cancer. The medica-
tion was developed by scien-
tists at the Hadassah-Hebr-
ew University Medical Cen-
ter in Jerusalem.

Dutch Non-Jewish
Certification Hit

AMSTERDAM (JTA )-
More than eight percent of
Dutch municipalities are
still willing to supply certifi-
cates stating that a person
is not Jewish, according to
a survey taken by the Is-
rael Committee of The Neth-
erlands.
Such a statement is
needed by many Dutch citi-
zens working or traveling in
the Arab countries, espe-
cially Saudi Arabia and the
Persian ,Gulf states where
many Dutch firms now oper-
ate.
The committee says that
such a statement is in viola-
tion of the international
agreement against racial
discrimination and it will
ask the Ministry of Interior
to ban the practice.
