THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Mini-Mission Sees Human Side
of Welfare Federation Agencies

Without ever leaving the
ground, a mission took off
from Oak Park last week,
headed for an afternoon of
learning about the Detroit
Jewish community and the
people who benefit from the
network of agencies sup-
ported by the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation.
It was the first mission of
its kind, billed On the Road
With Federation" — a bus
trip with stops at the Jewish
Vocational Service, Jewish
Federation Apartments and
Jewish Home for Aged, all
beneficiaries of the Allied
Jewish Campaign.
At each stop, the partici-
pants, including
businessmen, homemakers,
doctors and other profes-
sionals, learned about
different aspects of the
community's structure and
the work of all its agencies
— from a description of Fed-
eration's budgeting and
planning process to a touch-
ing slide presentation at the
Jewish Home for Aged.
_ Most of all, though, it
was a chance to see how
real people are served by
Federation and the Cam-

Morris Branch of the
Jewish Community Cen-
ter, or a group of re-
tarded persons, leaving
work at the end of a
productive day at the
Jewish Vocational Serv-
ice's Oak Park office.
By the end of their day,
the mission participants
had observed the broad
range of Federation in-
volvement. JWF President
Joel Tauber set the tone:
"Federation may be per-
ceived — and to some extent
correctly — as a large
structure, concerned with
the functions of budgeting,
planning, fund raising. But
in coordinating the delivery
of social services to the
Jewish community of De-
troit, Federation is con-
cerned with people. Our be-
neficiaries are people, and
our volunteers are people.
In doing our job, we must
remember the Jewish val-
ues of compassion of those
less fortunate, of the pursuit
of educational values, of the
nurturing of a sense of
self-worth."
An emotional moment
took place when Michael
Podlesny, at 86 the oldest
participant in the mission,
described his own first-hand
experience with those val-
ues. As a refugee from
Czechoslovakia after the
war, he was helped by the
Joint Distribution Commit-
tee and settled here with the
help of the Jewish commu-
nity.
Campaign Chairman
Jack Robinson pointed out

that the work of the agen-
cies, as well as the fulfill-
ment of the responsibilities
to Israel and Jews around
the world, could not be ac-
complished without the
Campaign. In comparing
the achievement of Detroit's
community in 1948, when
the state of Israel was estab-
lished, and in 1983, Robin-
son said that 30,000 donors
gave $5.8 million for the Is-
rael Emergency Fund and
$145,000 in new dollars for
Project Renewal.
Ellen Labes, president
of Federation's Women's
Division, and Dr. Conrad
Giles, vice president of
the JWF, served as mis-
sion leaders, while James
August summarized the
budgeting and planning
structure. August is
chairman of the Commu-
nity Services Division.
Others who represented
their agencies were Albert
Ascher, Stephen Bromberg,
Paul Feinberg, Linda Lee,
Gary Leo, Robert Lipsitz,
Michael Maddin, Helen
