This Community Attains High Goals
Resulting from Campaign's Trimph
A New Song
We thank thee, 0 Lord,
Because Thou has kept us alive, and maintained us,
And brought us to this day,
To which every prophet lifted up his soul,
For which every visionary yearned in his heart;
Because the dream is no longer a dream
Or a fantasy of the imagination;
Because the vision is now truth.
I thank Thee, 0 Lord,
Because I have seen with my own eyes
How the seed was dropped in the Valley of Jezreel
By the anonymous few,
Shadowless and waste with hunger;
The sheaf they planted has lifted itelf and grown
Into the State 6f Israel.

A high goal for communal support of educational and social service agencies and assistance to
Israel was attained here, with the 1981 Allied Jewish Campaign registering a record-setting triumph.
At the wind-up of the current Campaign, at a rally of workers and contributors at Cong. Shaarey
Zedek, Wednesday evening, Marvin Goldman and David Mondry, co-chairmen of the drive, and Sol
Drachier, executive vice president of the Jewish Welfare Federation, under whose auspices the Cam-
paigns are conducted, announced a total of $17,639,188 from 19,526 contributors. Drachler projected a
final total for the 1981 Campaign of $18,500,000 after remaining contributors are contacted.
Attainment of the generous responses is believed to retain for the Metropolitan Detroit Jewish
community a leadership role in U.S. Jewry's philanthropic record.
Despite the economic difficulties which have struck Detroit harder than any other city in
the land, more people have contributed to the 1981 Campaign and more new contributors are
registered now than in any other previous fund-raising drive.
Responses to the Allied Jewish Campaigns are evidenced in the following comparative figures:
1979, $17.4 million; 1980, $17.7 million; 1981, $18.5 million, 'plus $1.25 million for Project Renewal. The
gifts reported at the Wednesday rally mark the largest increase in eight years.
Federation President George M. Zeltzer told the audience of more than 500 that "together we
celebrate. We are one! We mark Yom
Hashoa, Yom Hazikaron and Yom
Ha'Atzmaut Holocaust Remembrance' Day,
Israel Memorial Day and Israel Indepen-
dence Day) by looking to the past and look-
ing to the future."
He said the Campaign goal is to enhance
the quality of life in Israel and the quality of
Jewish life in Detroit. In order to meet
those needs, he predicted that the Allied
Jewish Campaign would have a $25 million
goal for its 1985 Campaign.
Zeltzer publicly thanked Goldman
and Mondry for their Campaign leader-
ship efforts. The two co-chairmen de-
tailed some of the highlights of the 1981
