A group of young De-
troiters have returned from
a mission to Israel that
formed an integral part of a
Jewish Welfare Federation
leadership training pro-
gram, "Hadrakha."
The program, originally
funded last year as a pilot
project by United Jewish
Charities, is designed to
further the development of
those identified as future
community leaders.
The mission, held Jan.
11-20, was "an extremely
positive experience," said
Michael W. Maddin, Had-
rakha chairman. "The par-
ticipants got an even
stronger feeling for what
the Allied Jewish Cam-
paign accomplishes. They
are looking forward to shar-
ing the depth of their ex-
perience with others."
The group traveled to
many key sites, including
Ramla, Detroit's "twin
city" through Project
Renewal; the Yad Vas-
hem memorial to the Six
Million; and the Jewish
Agency, for meetings
with top leaders.
Of special significance
was a Bar Mitzva service at
the Western Wall for three
participants, two of whom
had never been Bar Mitzva.
Before leaving, the group
attended a series of educa-
tional programs covering
many aspects of communal
leaderhip, including an
overview on Federation's
member agencies and a
practicum on solicitation
techniques, explained

their uniforms) at the fun-
eral of Grand Admiral Karl
Doenitz on Jan. 6 in de-
fiance of a Defense Ministry
ban. Doenitz, commander of
the U-boat fleet in World
War II, succeeded Hitler as
Reichschancellor in 1945
and negotiated Germany's
surrender.
The Defense Ministry
explicitly ordered military
personnel not to attend the
funeral in uniform. The oc-
casion was used by rightw-
ing and neo-Nazi elements
to demonstrate their sym-
pathy for the Nazi system. It
was largely shunned by
German officials.

Jewish Labor Movement
Focus on Austrian Exhibit

VIENNA (JTA) — The
contribution of the Jewish
labor movement in the fight
for social justice and against
militarism and racism be-
tween the two world wars is
documented in a major ex-
hibition on the Austrian
labor movement during
those years.
The exhibition, which
opened here last week, is in
honor of Chancellor Bruno
Kreisky's 70th birthday.
Before 1914 only a small
part of the Jewish popula-
tion in Vienna was proleta-
rian. Nevertheless, the
Poale Zion (proletarian
Zionists) organization was
first organized in 1904. At
the beginning of World War
I, a large number of refu-
gees from Galicia contrib-
uted to the rapid growth of
the Poale Zion organization.
War, hunger and iden-
tification with the Bol-
shevik revolution in Rus-
sia in 1917 led to a
radicalization of the
group... A -considerable
number of Poale Zionists

.

joined the newly founded
Communist Party.
The rest of the group con-
tinued to adhere to the pro-
gram of Poale Zion till the
beginning of fascism in Au-
stria in 1934. Many Jewish
workers were also members
of the Social Democratic
Party.
Between the two wars
the Jewish population of
Vienna numbered up tc
200,000. The Jewish com-
munity had a varied cul-
tural life, including news-
papers, institutions and a
Yiddish theater which
flourished until the Nazis
overran Austria.

Foreign Trade
Deficit Reduced

TEL AVIV (JNI) — Is-
rael's trade deficit fell by 13
percent in 1980, even with
rising oil prices. The 40 per-
cent drop in quantitative
terms was due to an eight
percent increase in imports
against a 23 percent rise in
exports. Exports to Africa
alone rose 66 percent.
