THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Campaign Seeking Record Total

(Continued from Page 1)
lauded Campaign Chair-
man Jack Robinson for in-
stituting a Campaign solici-
tation policy of more direct
talking to people than any
previous Campaign chair-
man."
Robinson expressed his
thanks to the Campaign
volunteers and contributors
"on behalf of those who are
going to be helped . . . the
elderly, our youngsters who
are having a crisis of iden-
tity, the people of Ramla
(Detroit's Project Renewal
twin city in Israel). In these
difficult times for Israel, her
people know that she is not
alone."
Robinson stressed the
effort this year to
broaden the Campaign,
citing the growing num-
bers of Russian immig-
rants who are Campaign
volunteers, the Israeli
community in Detroit, the
participation of syna-
gogues in Federation
Sabbath and the agency
participants in Federa-
tion Fair.
Joseph Orley introduced
Campaign division leaders,
who read the tallies for their
respective divisions. Re-
porting were: Jeffrey
Kravitz, Metropolitan Di-
vision; Julie Borim, Young
Adult Division; Ellen
Labes, Women's Division;
Bernard Klein, Mercantile;
Mark Hauser, Professional
Service; Joseph Colten,
Industrial and Automotive;
Michael Maddin, Real Es-
tate and Building Trades;
Bernard Schreier, Food and
Services; and Dr. Martin
Hart, Professional Health.
Orley's brother, Graham,
introduced guest speaker
Tovah Feldshuh, who capti-
vated the audience with a
dramatic, heart-warming
description of how her role
in 1977 as the Czech
freedom-fighter Helena in
the television mini-series
"Holocaust" changed her
life and raised her Jewish
consciousness.
Miss Feldshuh was a
young bride in real life
when she accepted the role
of Helena. "I went from my
honeymoon to the
Holocaust . . . from sweet
sleep to nightmares .. .
from pastel colors to the kil-
ling grounds."
The role of Helena
"emblazoned itself on
me" and Miss Feldshuh
began speaking actively
five years ago for the
United Jewish Appeal
and other Jewish organ-
izations.
-
"Like Helena, you have
taken a road," she told her
Detroit audience. "You seek
a vision. I speak to you as a
fan. I'm aware of what you
have accomplished, as are
many others around the
country, and I want to see
you take a quantum leap in
these final 36 days of the
Campaign."
She described Golda
Meir's soliciting in the
United States for Israel, the
Sadat-Begin talks at Camp
David and "your Detroit
goal of $21 million after last
year's total of $18.5 million"

as quantum leaps.
"Your expression of love,
time and money are the
trim tabs that shift the di-
rection of an entire ship. My
grandma used to say, 'If you
reach for the stars, you may
land on the roof. If you reach
for the roof, you won't get off
the ground.'
"Take the quantum
leap!," she urged.
The final speaker at the
meeting was Jewish Wel-
fare Federation Execu-
tive Vice President
Wayne Feinstein, who
announced the totals
pledged to date.
Although jubilant over
the interim totals, Feins-
tein cautioned that "Our
goal is not making Detroit
again the best Campaign
community in the United
States, but to achieve our
urgent needs."
Feinstein announced that
contributors have also
given an additional
$526,000 to Detroit's Proj-
ect Renewal programs in
Ramla. Detroiters have now
contributed $6.5 million
toward their Project Re-
newal goal of $7.5 million.

Phonogift week — March 25
to April 1 — when volun-
teers will call thousands of
area women and ask for
their 1984 Campaign
pledge.
At 6 p.m., Stone will

Health Division at Adat
Shalom Synagogue.

sional Health Division are

Next Report
Meeting March 25

The next progress report
meeting will be 10 a.m.
March 25 at Jewish Federa-
tion Apartments in Oak
Park. It will feature an on-
site report from Rabbi M.
Robert Syme, back from a
mission to Czechoslovakia
and Israel.
Rabbi Syme, of Temple
Israel, is a member of the
United Jewish Appeal Rab-
binical Advisory Council,
who was selected as a par-
ticipant on the special mis-
sion, along with 24 of his
colleagues across the coun-
try.
The mission focused on
many of those needs being
addressed by the Detroit
Campaign: aging survivors
living in the remnant
Jewish communities of
Eastern Europe, kept alive
physically and spiritually
through the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee; and the
immigrants and young
settlers living in the absorp-
tion centers and settle-
ments of Israel.
In the meantime, re-
cruitment is underway for
the April 8 closing Cam-
paign telethon, to take place
at the United Hebrew
Schools. Volunteers are
asked to contact Leonard
Milstone at the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation, 965-3939.
