ills of the disadvantaged,
to recompensing for past
errors, for affirmative ac-
tion and quotas and some
of these issues ran con-
trary to the universalist
concept of Jewish
thought.
"We began to lose" our
ability to keep the dialogue
going with our fellow com-
batants in the battle to
overcome prejudice and in-
equality in this country."
Referring to the concerns
that have been created by
religious influences in the
1980 national election, and
the role of the Moral Major-
ity, Zeltzer assailed such in-
trusions in the American
social system and declared:
"Today, in this ferment of
changing coalitions we
sometimes find ourselves in
an uncomfortable position
because of our commitment
to the security of Israel, and
our commitment to an open
society in this country. The
new phenomenon of a
Christian America has ap-
peared in the Moral Major-
ity and we hear less fre-
quently of our Judeo-
Christian society.
"On the one hand we
see the Moral Majority as
a friend of Israel beCause
of its fundamentalist be-
liefs and yet in this coun-
try they represent a view
which essentially calls
for its dominance over
our political and social
life. We need to recognize
and join the issue with
others who now raise
their voices that we do
not intend to sit idly by as
the structures we so
laboriously built are torn
down in the name of fun-
damentalist morality.
"This country needs new
coalitions and we must join
with them to see to it that
extremism does not prevail
and, with our new allies,
make sure the pluralistic
and open society remains as
our way of life."
Zeltzer informed the
gathering that Martin Cit-
rin, former president of the
Federation, is the nominee
for president of the Council
ofJewish Federations. He is
due to be voted into the na-
tional leadership position at
the next CJF General As-
sembly in St. Louis, Mo. in
November.
Louis Berry, himself a
Butzel Award winner, pre-
sented this year's award for
outstanding services to the
communi y to Irwin Green.
He acknowledged the awar-
dee's many services in the
community and his devo-
tion to the social service
causes and Israel, and his
leadership as a former
chairman of the Allied
Jewish Campaign and in
many other capacities.
In his reply Green said,
”I'm grateful for the
honor, but I don't look
upon it as an Oscar but as
a symbol of ideals we
Jews hold dear ...

If we are truly prudent we
shall cherish those noblest
and happiest of our tenden-
. cies -- to love and to confide., -,
--Ephyer,

Green are, from left, Jewish Welfare Federation
President George Zeltzer, Green, former recipient
Louis Berry and former Federation President Martin
Citrin.

"I got involved in Federa-
tion in 1956 when I joined
Detroit's first mission to Is-
rael. Till then my only in-
volvement was making a
pledge ... I don't know how
I could repay the opportu-
nity of building a nation."
More than 350 persons
attended the meeting.
Re-elected to the Federa-
tion Board of Governors for
three-year terms were N.
Brewster Broder, Maurice
S. Cohen, Dr. Milton J. Mil-
ler and Jane Sherman. Dr.
