$17.4 Million Projected for 1979 Campaign

410

The 1979 Allied Jewish
Campaign-Israel Emer-
gency Fund will reach a
total equal to 10 percent of
all the funds collected by the
Campaign during the last
30 years. -
At the Campaign's clos-
ing meeting April 26, some
$16,175,622 was reported
collected already for the
1979 drive, with an addi-
tional $4,665,883 desig-
nated for Project Renewal
during the next five years.
Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion Executive Director Sol
Drachle,r projected final
figures for 1979, based on
2,000 more donors to be con-
tacted, at $17,450,000 for
the AJC-IEF and $5 million
for Project Renewal.
Those figures were the
major highlight of the
evening at Cong. Shaarey
Zedek devoted to celeb-
rating the accom-
plishments of the Cam-
paign.

along with David Handle-
man chaired the 1979 cam-
paign, served as master of
ceremonies for the evening.
Rabbi David Nelson of
Cong. Beth Shalom gave the
invocation; Campaign co-
chairman Marvin H.
Goldman called for the
Campaign Division reports;
and co-chairman David S.
Mondry introduced the
guest speaker, Israeli Am-
bassador to the U.S. Ep-
hraim Evron.
The ambassador told the
audience, "Israel's Inde-
pendence Day will be differ-
ent this year because for the
first time in 31 years Israel
will be at full peace with her
most important Arab
neighbor."
Evron said he and his
family were beseiged in
Jerusalem 31 years ago,
"not knowing what our fate
would be. Now Israel knows
what the future will be."
He said that four
months ago, when he be-
came ambassador, U.S.-
Israel relations were in
turmoil. He said, "Now
we have peace with
Egypt and relations with
the U.S. have never been
better. We must rejoice in
this close association,
this allied spirit."
The ambassador added
that March 26 — the, day
peace was signed on the
White House lawn — has
completely changed the fu-
ture of the Middle East. "If
we are not witnessing the
end of the conflict," he said,
"at least we are seeing the
beginning of the end."
Evron reminded the

.

audience that Egypt has
played a major role in each
of the Arab-Israeli wars. He
doubted that there could be
another war without Egypt.
The role of Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat was
described by Evron as
"courageous. His Jerusalem
visit, in one sweep, did away
with the past and opened
the door to the future.
Evron also praised the
Israeli government "for
making the most difficult,
painful decisions" of any
Israeli government. He
noted the sacrifices fbr
'peace that Israel has
made: the Sinai and its oil
fields, and noted that Is-
rael is still at war with the
nations to its east: Jor-
dan, Syria and Iraq.
He said legally Israel does
not have to negotiate the fu-
ture of Judea and Samaria
as along as Jordan refuses
to participate but added
that Israel will negotiate.
Ambassador Evron said
the peace process "was ir-
reversible" after Sadat's
Jerusalem visit, but he pre-
dicted there would be more
terror raids by the PLO into
Israel. "This too will be
overcome," he said.
Evron said the -U.S. role
was vital in the entire proc-
ess and he announced that
he had delivered a note of
thanks from Prime Minister
Menahem Begin to
President Jimmy Carter
that day which included
Begin's nomination of Car-
ter for the 1979 Nobel Prize
for Peace.
Evron stated that
peace will cost Israel
heavily and put an . addl-

terrorist strongholds since
Israeli forces invaded south
Lebanon a year ago.
The cease-fire, put into ef-
fect by the United Nations,
was requested by the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion.
Israeli residents of the
border area, who were
forced into bomb shelters by
Palestinian rocket salvoes
protested bitterly when
they heard the news.
In an angry letter to Sec-
retary General Kurt Wal-
dheim last week, Premier
Menahem- Begin contended
that 21 of the 22 fatalities
inflicted on UNIFIL troops
were caused by the Palesti-
nians and their allies, not
the Christian forces com-
manded by Maj. Saad Had-
dad.
The UN Security Council,
which was asked by Leba-
non to discuss the situation
in south Lebanon, con-
cluded a brief meeting Fri-
day with a statement ex-
pressing "deepest concern"
over the growing tension in
the area.

Jewry. He said Israel is
giving up $10 billion
worth of defenses in the
Sinai, offset by an $800
million grant and $2.5 bil-
lion in loans from the-U.S.
"We have to make up this
difference," he said. He also
pointed to Israel's pressing
social needs. "Wars have
prevented social advance-
ment, the construction of
housing, the finding of jobs.
We must do this, with your
help, quickly," he said. "You
are rightly proud of what
you have done in the Cam-
paign. But much more has
to be done.
