Critical Juncture for Jewry

By GEORGE M. ZELTZER

President, Jewish Welfare
Federation of Detroit

a few days, the
strength and creativity of
the Jewish communities of
North America will be
brought to bear on the major
issues of our time. The 49th
General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Federa-
tions comes to Detroit at a
critical juncture for world
Jewry.
Embarking upon the de-
cade of the 1980s, we in De-
troit look to our colleagues
a sharing of experiences
ideas that will be of
mutual benefit. The Gen-
eral Assembly always has
contributed much to our
community's ability to con-
front challenge and adapt to
changing needs.
Among those challenges
are the problems of an aging
population, increased mo-

bility and the consequences
of dwindling communities,
the need for cultural and
educational opportunities
to enhance the quality of
Jewish life and many other
issues.

At the same time, we
look with dismay upon an

increasingly sophisti-
cated public relations ef-
fort by Israel's foes, even
while terrorism against
her people and against
Jewish institutions
around the world is
mounting. All of these are
on our collective agenda
for action.
Detroit takes great pride
in hosting the 49th GA. It
gives us the opportunity to
show why this community is
special and why Renais-
sance City hospitality has
become nationally — even
internationally — known.
On behalf of the Jewish
Welfare Federation, I wel-
come the General Assembly
delegates and their
families. I hope that our ses-
sions will be fruitful and
that in our sharing we will
find new strength for the
decade ahead.

Best Wishes for
Continued Success

Hostess Welcomes Delegates

By DULCIE ROSENFELD

Chairman, Detroit Host
Committee

As a longtime Detroit
booster, I take special de-
light in chairing the host
committee for the General
Assembly of the Council of
Jewish Federations.
This event gives our
Jewish community an
opportunity to demonstrate
why we are so special, for
just as hundreds of volun-
teers channel their philan-
lhropy and activity into
making our organizations
work, hundreds of volun-

teers have contributed their
talents and time to making
our GA delegates feel wel-
come.
The impressive agenda of
plenary and workshop ses-
sions will provide much food
for thought. At the same
time, no effort has been
spared to provide' oppor-
tunities to nourish the
spirit.
On this great occasion, I
am proud to share Detroit
with our sister communities
and to wish the GA dele-
gates a warm shalom!
