MEET YOUR LEADER: To be president of the Coun-
cil ofJewish Federations means to be the top leader Of more
than 800 organized Jewish communities in the United
States and Canada and the chief spokesman for them. They
embrace 95 percent of the entire Jewish population in both
Morton L. Mandel of Cleveland is now CJF president.
Mandel is thus now the top leader of the central body which
provides a multitude of services to the communities for
their major local, national and international needs, obliga-
tions and operations. CJF also provides the basic guidelines
on how best to conduct each major community operation.
MAN OF ABILITY: Mandel is a man of great ability
and of personal warmth and charm. He has a sharp ana-
lytical mind and cuts through very quickly into the heart of
a problem. He also relates to people very quickly and gains
friends easily. In his activities he has gained a multitude of
friends among Jewish leaders in this country and Israel.



His basic principle is quality. He applies this principle
in business as chairman and chief executive officer of a
multi-million dollar industrial complex of 16 different
companies manufacturing a variety of products for the
steel, automobile and other industries. He practices the
same approach in communal affairs. He is known to be fond
of sharing responsibility with the people with whom he
works; he lays importance on getting their fullest involve-
ment. As CJF president, he will have a very active corps of
officers working with him, as well as the broadest coopera-
tion of Jewish leaders from all parts of the country.
He is systematic and .a planner. One of his ambitions is
to bring young people into the highest levels of leadership.
He is now in search of able young men and women who are
actively engaged in the programs of their local com-
munities. He plans to stimulate them to develop their
interest in the direction of becoming part of the national
No newcomer to- Jewish communal life, he has a rich
record of recognition as leader on the local, national and
international level. Locally, he served as president of the
Jewish Communtiy Federations in Cleveland and of the
Cleveland Jewish Community Center. He is currently
president of Cleveland's United Way. He is the recipient of
civic honors, including one by the Cleveland Urban League
and the highest award by the Cleveland Jewish Federation.
He is a trustee of Case Western Reserve University, at
which he was a student. He is also a-trustee of the Mt. Sinai
Hospital of Cleveland.
On the national level, he served as the president of the
National Jewish Welfare Board.- He was vice president of
the Countil ofJewish Federations prior to his being elected
president. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the
Joint Distribution Committee and of the United Jewish
Appeal. On the international level he is currently the
president of the World Confederation of Jewish Commu-
nity Centers, a member of the board of governors of the
Jewish Agency, a member of the executive committee of the
Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture.
His wife, Barbara, is on the national board of the Na-
tional Couwil of Jewish Women, a trustee of the Jewish
Community Federation of Cleveland and holds leadership
positions in other Jewish bodies.
HISTORIC TURN: Mandel begins his term of
presidency at an historic turn in the history of the Council
of Jewish Federations. The CJF is now re-examining its
purpose and the philosophy which motivates its programs.
The original purpose of the CJF has continued since its
formation in 1932: to raise the level of the local health and
welfare services of the federations, that have evolved into
instruments for the general organization of the Jewish
community. The CJF — as a collective expression of the
federations — has become a force far creative Jewish con-
tinuity, survival and enrichment, and for association with
the Jewish communities of the world. -
For the past two years a special CJF committee has
been engaged in a most extensive re-examination of the
CJF philosophy and decision-making process. The recom-
mendations of this committee will be presented for discus-
sion and analysis to the four-day board of directors meeting
of the CJF next week. The recommendations will have to be
approved by the board and then submitted for adoption to
the CJF General Assembly in NoVember. When adopted,
they will bring new dimensions into the CJF functions.

Knesset May Use Shin Bet
to Prevent Security Leaks

The head of the Knesset
Foreign Affairs and Secu-
rity Committee, MoShe
Arens, intends to consider
using the Israeli intelli-
gence agency, the Shin Bet,
as a means of circumvent-
ing potential leaks to the
media on top-secret issues.
Calling the leaks "a dis-
ease which taints the entire
Israeli political system,"
Arens told the Knesset
plenum that it must be
halted immediately. Arens
was replying to a motion for
the agenda by MK Amos
Hadar, who urged the utili-
zation of the security serv-
ices in order to discover the
identity of those responsible
for the leaks.
Arens pointed to the
recent refusal _by the
Army Chief of Staff and
certain Cabinet members
to reveal information to
the committee, adding
that this in' turn pre-
vented optimum
decision-making on is-
sues of security and de-

As a result, four subcom-
mittees have been estab-
lished in order to conduct
free discussion in the small-
est forum possible. Noting
that only four or five com-
mittee members were re-
sponsible for the leaks, he
said that all appeals to them
by him, the Premier, the De-
fenSe Minister and Foreign
Minister had been in vain.
