When James Wyatt, mod-
erator of the Northeast
Synod of the United
Presbyterian Church in the
U.S.A. presides at the
Synod Mission Council this
weekend, he will wear a_
cross crafted by a Jewish ar-
tist from Teaneck, N.J.
The ceremonial cross of
sterling silver and enamel
was created by Linda Gis-
sen, a sculptor and
enamelist noted for her
works_of Judaica. The cross
she created will be used by
Wyatt as a symbol of his
office throughout his term.

Economy Hurts
Israel Colleges

The chairman of the board
of Institutions of Higher
Learning, Amos Horev, said
the current financial crisis
might cause universities to
shut down.
He told the Knesset Edu-
cation Committee that uni-
versities were short 400
million shekels ($66 mil-
lion) and it is not clear
where the funds to continue
operations would come
from. The committee called
for an urgent meeting with
the finance and education

in 1976 only 59.2 per cent of those eligible to vote actually voted.
Because ...
as little as one vote in each precinct can decide a tight election.
Because ...
the Congress is at stake as well as the Presidency.
Because ...
equality for 'omen under the law is still not guaranteed by the
Constitution of the United States.

THE "DOUBLE DEGREE": Jewish graduates plan-
ning to make their careers in Jewish communal service can
now pursue an exciting combination of graduate studies
which will bring them double degrees simultaneously from
a university and a Jewish institution of higher learning.
The university will award them a Master of Social Wor
degree and the Jewish school will award them a Master of
Arts diploma in Jewish studies.
This unique combination qualifies them not only as
experts in social work in general but also as social workers
with good Jewish knowledge needed in the field of Jewish
communal work. An intensive, and highly demanding pro-
gram, taken over two years — which may also include a
summer study/travel program to Israel and Europe — re-
quires concurrent attendance at both schools on a year-
round basis, including some evening work.
Leaders of the American Jewish community, espe-
cially the leadership of the Council of Jewish Federations,
have long been troubled.by the fact that most of the Jewish
social workers who accept their Jewish identity lack a
Jewish commitment.
The "double degree" system is providing an answer to
this problem. It encourages young and highly qualified
graduates to enter the ranks of Jewish communal service
and to become professional leaders able to play significant
roles in community planning and executive management
within the American Jewish community.
JEWISH COMMITMENT: The first school of Jewish
social workers functioning under the "double degree" pro-
gram is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its first
graduating class with a three-day symposium Nov. 21-24.
It is the School of Jewish Communal Service at the Hebrew
Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Los Angeles.
Its "partner" in the program is the University of Southern
California. Its graduates now hold positions in 56 Jewish
communities throughout the country.
Another school now reaching its 1Qth anniversary is
the Baltimore Institute for Jewish Communal Service
under the auspices of the University of Maryland School of
Social Work and the Baltimore Hebrew College. A joint
degree program in social work is now being offered also by
the graduate school of the Jewish Theological Seminary
and the Columbia University School of Social Work. A
two-year program is also offered by the Brandeis Univer-
sity. The Wurzweiler School of Social Work at the Yeshiva
University is similarly offering a two-year program lead-
k ing to a Master's Degree in Social Work, with a view to
educate Jewish community organization executives.
There is also the Spertus College of Judaica in Chicago
which conducts a program in Jewish communal service,
leading to the Master of Arts degree and geared to respond
to the expanding needs of the Jewish community.
LINKS WITH ISRAEL: All programs require, in
addition to academic studies, field work in Jewish agencies
and institutions. Some of the Jewish schools hold travel/
study programs in Israel for several weeks after completion
of the first year.- They also take their students to Europe.
The objective is to study social welfare problems in Israel,
to learn Hebrew as a spoken language, to experience the
Jewish refugee movement from the Soviet Union to Israel
and the Western world, and to understand post-Holocaust
West European Jewish life.
An estimated cost for each student of the two-year
"double degree" program is about $8,000 a year. This in-
cludes tuition fees for both schools, room and board and
monthly living expenses. It does not include expenses for
the summer study/travel programs. Students are
encouraged to apply to their local Jewish federations and to
national agencies for scholarships and aid.
The recruitment department of the Council of Jewish
Federations in New York is helpful to those seeking schol-
arships from their federations. The students come from all
parts of the country and some of them return, after their
graduation, to their native towns to assume responsible
positions in Jewish communal institutions there.
