Foundation Comes to Aid of Cultural Units

NEW YORK - The Na-
tional Foundation for
Jewish Culture was
founded in 1959 following a
two-year study by the
Council of Jewish Federa-
tions of Jewish cultural life
in the United States.
From the day of its forma-
tion, one of the foundation's
primary areas of concern
has been the maintenance
of those organizations
whose primary function is
cultural.
This it has accomplished
through its sponsorship and

administration of the Joint
Cultural Appeal, a consor-
tium composed of the
American Academy for
Jewish Research, the
American Jewish Historical
Society, the Congress for
Jewish Culture, the Confer-
ence on Jewish Social
Studies, Histradruth Ivrith,
the Jewish Publication
Society, the Leo Baeck In-
stitute, the Yivo Institute
for Jewish Research and the
National Foundation.
These organizations main-
tain major libraries and

archives, publish schol-
arly publications, conduct
research programs and
house many of the objects
that illuminate our past.
The foundation has
also identified other
areas in which needs
must be met. It recog-
nized the importance of
training scholars to oc-
cupy teaching positions
on American campuses
and its grants program
was an important com-
ponent in the remarkable
growth of Jewish studies
programs in the United
States, a development of
historic proportions.
Since 1961, the founda-
tion has awarded some 300
grants — worth more than
$1 million — to graduate
students working toward
doctorates in Jewish
studies. As the field ex-
panded, the foundation pro-
vided important assistance
to the Association for
Jewish Studies, a profes-
sional organization that
now has more than 900
members.
In a related field, the
foundation helped create
and coordinate the Council
of Archives and Research
Libraries in Jewish Studies.
The council provides plan-
ning and coordination for
the field and has helped se-
cure nearly $1 million in
government grants for proj-
ects vital for the preserva-
tion of the cultural trea-
sures of the Jewish commu-
nity.
In the foundation's view,
the arts are another most ef-
fective avenue for address-

ing the aspirations and im-
agination of the contempor-
ary Jew, and it has recently
embarked on a broad-based
program of services in the
arts. It is attempting to form
a bridge between artists
who are exploring their
Jewish heritage and the es-
tablished Jewish commu-
nity, which is seeking to re-
open itself to creative
enrichment.
Since this program was
initated in 1979, the found-
ation helped establish and
now coordinates the Jewish
Theater Association, com-
posed of 12 theater com-
panies, and an advisory
committee, whose chairman
is Theodore Bikel.
The first Jewish
Theater Festival and con-
ference, held in June
1980, attracted 3,000
people. The association
has also compiled and is-
sued a Jewish scripts in-
ventory, initiated a
playwriting award and
publishes a newsletter.
And with the help of a
grant from the National
Endowment for the Arts,
the foundation is spon-
soring an Ethnic Music
Festival, exploring the
authentic folk traditions
of our people.
In addition, in an effort to
stimulate innovative cul-
tural programming on the
local level, the foundation,
through its Newman Incen-
tive grants, has made more
than 30 financial awards for
traveling exhibits, arts fes-
tivals and the dissemina-
tion of other creative cul-
tural programs.

Pro-PLO Group
to Stage Dutch
Campaign in Fall

AMSTERDAM (JTA) —
A pro-Palestinian group,
the Netherlands Palestin ,
Committee, is expected to
launch a large scale prop-
aganda campaign in Hol-
land next fall.
Two members of the
group said in a radio inter-
view with the Dutch Labor
Broadcasting Organization
"Vara" that they were "hor-
rified" by the oppression of
the Palestinians on the
West Bank. They said they
learned from inhabitants of
the Daisha refugee camp
near Bethlehem and from
students at Bir Zeit Univer-
sity that conditions were
much worse than they had
expected.

Raid on Iraq
Hurt Israel
Intelligence Aims

TEL AVIA (JTA) — The
chief of the Mossad, Israel's
central intelligence agency,
said in a newspaper inter-
view that the massive pub-
licity surrounding Israel's
destruction of Iraq's nuclear
reactor in an air raid June 7
has caused great harm to Is-
raeli intelligence opera-
tions and had compromised
sources of information.
The Mossad head, whose
name is never disclosed and
who rarely speaks to the
media, deplored the
"witches' dance" of claims
and counter-claims in an
Haaretz interview.

PLO Hits Reagan
Stand on Attack

BEIRUT — The Palestine
Liberation Organization
(PLO) has accused
President Reagan of justify-
ing Israel's attack on the
Iraqi nuclear reactor June
7.
"It is a strange logic by
which President Reagan
justifies the Israeli raid on
the Iraqi reactor and con-
siders the Syrian missiles in
the Bekaa Valley as a
threat to peace in the area,"
an unidentified PLO
spokesman said.

WASHINGTON — The
Washington Post reported
on June 25 that Syrian spe-
cial forces massacred 150-
200 men in the town of
Hama in late April.
The men were reportedly
opponents of President
Hafez Assad's regime.
The Post based its story
on eyewitness accounts and
diplomatic reports in Wash-
ington, Europe and the
Middle ,East.
