Mandel: Doubling Campaign Funds Needed for Jewish Survival

(Continued from Page 12)
specific political and eco-
nomic developments that
might impinge on Jewish
communal activities in the
period ahead.
Aside from oblique refer-
ences to differences between
the leadership of North
American Jewiry and that
of Israel's leadership on
some issues, which he
stressed could be resolved
through dialogue, Mandel
sided optimism about the
ility of American Jewry
meet the challenges of the
period ahead in defining
goals and reaching given ob-
jectives.
In explaining the need
to move from current
combined North Ameri-
can communal campaign
of $550 million to a new
level of $1 billion in the
next five years, Mandel
declared: "The plain fact
is that we have not been
raising the money we
need to properly meet
these basic respon-
sibilities. This has pro-
duced a sense of frustra-
tion, as we try to find
ways to cut up differently
a pie that is already too
small, shifting funds from
one deserving recipient
to another."
Among the greatest
domestic concerns and
priorities for the CJF in the
period ahead which require
the increased financing and
long-range planning Man-
del listed Jewish education,
problems of the family,
services for the elderly,
Soviet Jewish resettlement,
federation-synagogue rela-
tions and still other key is-
sues."

o

Both Israelis and our
federation leaders have
much to learn from each
other. If such a dialogue
can be structured, it can
substantially improve
our working relationship
with Israel."

Meanwhile, Mandel re-
ported that there are sev-
eral broad areas of concern
with regard to Israel that
CJF is dealing with cur-
rently. "First, just two
months ago, local federa-
tions and CJF, in coopera-
tion with the National
Jewish C_ommunity Rela-
tions Advisory Council,
launched a special program
on Israel public relations,
designed to supplement
current on-going activi-
ties," Mandel said. "The ob-
jective is to interpret Israel
better to North Americans
in light of some erosion of
Israel's international posi-
tion."

In the area of Israel's eco-
nomic development, Man-
del continued, CJF has ap-
pointed a committee to find
a model or mechanism that
will bring the business
leadership of the American
Jewish community more ef-
fectively into Israel's eco-
nomic future — "That will
commit the vast business
talent that exists in North
America with the oppor-
tunities and talent that

exist in Israel."
Furthermore, Mandel
said, in September the CJF
board of directors officially
went on record "encourag-
ing the Jewish Agency to
move forward with its plans
of self-examination. This
process, to be launched next
February, carries with it
the hope of making the
Jewish Agency even more
effective in the programs it
undertakes for social bet-
terment in Israel. We be-
lieve that in the months
ahead, North American
leadership has a unique
opportunity to participate
importantly in what may be
a major re-shaping of the
Jewish Agency."

Leader Analyzes
French Anti-Semitism

Anti-Semitism in France
was described by a French
Jewish communal leader as
"the beast that is buried in
the French collective un-
conscious." But this "latent,
insidious anti-Semitism" is
directed against the "corpo-
rate body" of Frency Jewry,
not against the individual
Jew, and is given a veneer of
respectibility by attacking
Zionism rather than
Judaism, according to Ber-
nard Attali, a leader of the
Fonds Social Juif Unifie.

hundred delegates attend-
ing a plenary session on
anti-Semitism that ever
since Auschwitz attacks
against Jews in France
have been under the guise of
attacking Zionism. Anti-
Semitism in France, he
noted, in the recent period
has been the consequence of
three factors: French poli-
tics in relation to Israel; the
rebirth of an extremist
ideology among French new
right intellecuals garbed in
the language of pseudo-
science and metaphysical

Jewish Commitment
to Sustain Israel

In addition, Mandel said,
"the Jewish community of
North America has made a
permanent and deep com-
mitment to the support and
sustenance of the state of Is-
rael" whose well-being "is
central to our well-being" in
a chain that is irrevocably
linked. He noted that a
major opportunity exists to
find ways "to develop our re-
lationship with Israel much
more fully; to create a true
partnership in every sense
of the word" that "pools its
talent and strives to im-
prove the quality of life of
both partners."
In assessing this relation-
ship, Mandel observed:
With all our similarities,
raelis and North Ameri-
Cans live in different cul-
tures, and they are used to
entirely different political
systems. It is essential to
our future that Israel's
leadership and the leader-
ship of North American
Jewry understand the
ground rules by which each
group governs itself. Today,
we do not always have this
understanding."
Focussing on the ap-
parent although un-
specified differences,
Mandel stated: "I believe
we need a continuing
dialogue with Israelis in
the areas of human serv-
ices, economics and in-
ternational relations.
