JDC Effort Grows on Behalf of Lebanese

the Israeli advance into
Lebanon on June 6 for it to
become apparent that the
PLO technique of shielding
themselves with the bodies
of innocent Lebanese and
their fellow Palestinians
would result in great num-
bers of civilian casualties,
as well as large-scale de-
struction of property.
Despite Israeli efforts to
minimize the number of
civilians affected the PLO
terrorists forced a different
kind of a battle than any Is-
rael has ever known. The
long-suffering people of
Lebanon were its primary
victims.
As the result became ap-
parent, American Jews
joined the people of Israel
and Americans of all religi-
ous persuasions in respond-
ing to the acute humanita-
rian needs of the Lebanese
civilians. This latest bitter
battle capped nearly a de-
cade of civil and religious
wars.
While no accurate fi-
gures on the number of
homeless exist as of this
writing, it is clear that
many of them had fled the
anarchy and terror of
south Lebanon during
earlier times and at the
first pause in the fighting
had begun to return to
rebuild their homes.
On June 17, the Ameri-
can Jewish community
turned to the American
Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee (JDC), "The
Joint" as it is known affec-
tionately around world. Fol-
lowing consultations with a
broad range of organiza-
tions representink the
philanthropic, fraternal,
clerical and defense agen-
cies of the American Jewish
community, JDC's presi-
dent, Henry Taub, an-
nounced a commitment of
$100,000 as an "immediate
emergency contribution to
Lebanese relief."
The efforts of JDC, ac-
cording to its executive vice
president, Ralph Goldman
would be coordinated with

the humanitarian efforts of
the U.S. and of Israel.
In addition, JDC followed
the practice established in
its handling of similar non-
sectarian programs such as
Cambodian refugees in
Thailand and victims of the
1980 earthquakes in Italy
and opened its mailbox,
(P.O. Box 2287, New York,
N.Y. 10163) to donations. In
this way it let the Jewish
community and the general
public, determine with their
donations, the final dimen-
sions of the JDC commit-
ment.
Within two weeks the
JDC pledge of $100,000
had been fully covered by
earmarked contributions
and as of this writing
money was still being re-
ceived.
JDC has been able to fund
its Lebanon activities with
donations specifically re-
ceived for that purpose,
without requiring it to take
funds from any of its con-
tinuing programs.
JDC has a 1982 regular
budget of $40.3 million
which it devotes to the re- ,
gcue, relief and rehabilita-
tion of Jews and Jewish
communities in more than
30 nations.
Its Lebanon effort is coor-
dinated by Dr. Samuel
Halperin, an expert in
education and a former de-
puty secretary of the U.S.
Department of Health,
Education and Welfare.
During the first week of
July, Halperin headed a
JDC team which trans-
ported two five-truck
convoys of supplies and
delivered them to offi-
cials of the Lebanese
government.
- The JDC staff reports con-
firmed that their work in
Lebanon had the complete

Holocaust Book
Is Joint Venture

NEW YORK — Docu-
ments tracing the evolution
of the Nazi Holocaust and
Jewish response and reisis-
tance in Germany, Austria,
Poland and the Soviet
Union have been translated
into English and published
by Yad Vashem, the
Holocaust memorial and re-
search center in Israel, in
cooperation with the Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai
Brith and Ktav Publishing
House.
The 504-page book
"Documents on the
Holocaust, Selected Sources
on the Destruction of the
Jews of Germany and Au-
stria, Poland, and the Soviet
Union," is available in the
United States through the
ADL.

WJC Guide

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The World Jewish Congress
has produced a study guide
specifically developed to
help the layman trace his or
her Jewish roots. The study
kit, "My Parents' House,"
was produced by the WJC
cultural department and
the Center for Programm-
ing of the World Zionist
Organization.

cooperation of both the Is-
raeli and Lebanese au-
thorities. .

The JDC relief shipments
included 3,000 foam rubber
mattresses, 500 cartons of
kerosene cooking stoves,
pots, pans and eating uten-
sils as well as 1,000 gallons
of kerosene,. Also trans-
ported to Lebanon by JDC
were blankets, baby food
and powdered milk donated
by other agencies and
trucked into Lebanon by
JDC from Ben-Gurion Air-
port in Israel.
All of the JDC's current
activities are in the Tyre
and Sidon areas of Lebanon.
The donations received
by JDC have come from a
broad representation of
American Jewry. The
largest single contribu-
tion came from Cong.
Emanu-El of New York
and totaled $35,000.
In the case of the Cambo-
rian refugees, JDC's initial
commitment was for
$30,000 though the public
response eventually ex-
ceeded $350,000. It is too
soon to make any accurate
projections on the amounts
that will be available for
Lebanese relief, but it
seems posible that it will
exceed the sum available for
Cambodian relief.

NEW YORK — The
Society for Humanistic
Judaism will inaugurate its
2,000-tree woodland project
in Israel in January with
ceremonies at the Birming-
ham Temple in Farmington
Hills.
The society's woodland is
planned for the Lahav For-
est, the only existing Jewish
National Fund forest in the
Negev Desert.
The woodland will be,_
augurated on Jan. 29, which
is Tu b'Shevat.
