JDC CONCLAVE: Something new has been added
this year by the Joint Distribution Committee in the pro-
gram of its worldwide relief activities — something that
reflects the humanitarian sentiments of the American
Jewish community.
The innovation consists of starting to give aid to Chris-
tian and Moslem Arabs in Lebanon who had been the vic-
tims for years of terrorism by the Palestine Liberation
Organization and are suffering from the present warfare in
the country. A detailed report on the subject will be pre-
sented at the 68th annual meeting of the JDC by Henry
Taub and Ralph I. Goldman, president and executive vice
president, respectively, of the organization. Both were in
Lebanon. The annual conclave will take place in New York
next week, attended by Jewish communal leaders from
various parts of the country.
JDC PROBLEMS: The JDC supports 105 programs
in Israel aiding the aged, the handicapped, chronically ill,
mentally ill and others. It also assists 127 community cen-
ters. It allocates about $1,400,000 a year for religious-
cultural programs which include subventions to 170
yeshivot with about 27,000 students.
Many of the programs supported by JDC in Israel are
based on matching funds. Neither the Israel government
nor the institutions involved are now in a position to meet
their matching obligations because of the cost of the
Lebanese war. The JDC may therefore be faced with the
necessity of reviewing some of the programs it supports.
A major problem are the yeshivot. The JDC board has
for some time been discussing the need to review its
religious-cultural program in Israel of which the yeshivot
constitute the largest part. They -have been supported by
JDC since the outbreak of World War I. There has never
been any cut in JDC assistance to them, nor is there any
reduction scheduled for 1983. The review intends to merely
establish the value of their programs against alternative
options. JDC subventions to the yeshivot inisrael are based
on a per capita calculation.
About 25 percent of the yeshivot are located in small
towns and villages where they combined their traditional
Torah study with community projects such as teaching,
youth clubs, summer camps and big brother programs.
Forty yeshivot with a student enrollment of about 9,000
have added vocational training to their curricula. There
are now 25 major yeshivot for women with courses parallel-
ing those in yeshivot for men. About 40 percent of all the
students are Sephardim.
