THE HUNGER FUND: Something new is being added
to Christian-Jewish relations in this country. It is joint
fundraising.
A joint fund-raising campaign by the major Catholic and
Protestant relief organizations, plus the Joint Distribution
Committee, is to be started. It is a limited campaign
planned to be conducted every year during the Thanksgiv-
ing period. It will be known as the World Hunger Fund
Appeal. Its purpose is to help feed hungry people in the
world.
The three "partners" will seek to remind the American
people that while they sit at their Thanksgiving dinners
and give thanks for- the blessings they enjoy, there are
millions of others in this world who are starving. The
Hunger Fund will appeal to Americans of all faiths to
donate $10 — the price of a Thanksgiving meal for a hungry
"unseen guest."
THE JEWISH REPRESENTATION: The campaign
will be directed by a policy-making board of directors with
each sponsoring agency supplying an equal number of
members. This board will be concerned also with the dis-
tribution of the funds raised. The JDC representatives on
the board will be Donald M. Robinson, JDC president; Jack
D. Weiler, chairman of the JDC board; Henry Taub,
member of the JDC executive; and Ralph Goldman, JDC
executive vice president.
Originally, the Catholic and Protestant initiators of the
Hunger Fund project approached the United Jewish Ap-
peal to participate as "the Jewish partner." But the UJA
could not join in the effort because it is not a functional
agency. However, UJA leadership recognized the desirabil-
ity that the American Jewish community should be suita-
bly represented in this interreligious undertaking. UJA
then asked the JDC, which is directly involved in relief
activities related to the problem of hunger, to serve as the
Jewish sponsor of the fund.
The Church World Service, the Catholic Relief Services
and the JDC committed themselves to provide $100,000
each as seed money to start the campaign in motion. This is
conceived as an advance against the funds to be raised.
Comedian Bob Hope will serve as national chairman of the
Hunger Fund Appeal.
STRENGTHENING AMITY: The partnership cam-
paign for funds to feed hungry families in the world into
which the Catholic Relief Service, the Church World Serv-
ice and the JDC have now entered, may be helpful indi-
rectly also in strengthening amity between American Jews
and the Christian church — especially the Protestant
Church, which has since the Yom Kippur War begun to fall
under the influence of Arab propaganda against Israel. The
coming together of JDC leaders with leaders ofthe Catholic
and the Protestant churches — although -not on political
matters but solely on the humanitarian project to help
hungry people everywhere — may hopefully lead to the
softening of the unfriendly attitude toward Israel'which is
especially noticeable in the ranks of the National Council of
Churches.
The World Hunger Fund is not the first American
philanthropic endeavor in this country to help hungry
people in the world. There is also the CARE organization.
However, the latter if not built on ecumenical sponsorship
but on representation from 25 organizations, Jewish and
non-Jewish.
For 12 years CARE had Ben Touster, former president of
HIAS, as chairman of its board of directors. CARE does not
now provide food to individuals, but to schools, hospitals
and other institutions. It receives surplus food projects from
the U.S. government free for its operations.
