Reform Groupe Request
Hike in. Agency Funding
New York — Five Reform
organizations have requested
$20 million from the Jewish
Agency for Israel and a total of
$88 million over five years for
40 Reform programs in Israel.
TlIt; application was submitted
jointly by the Union of Ameri-
can Hebrew Congregations, He-
brew Union College, the Central
Conference of American Rabbis,
the World Unioa for Progressive
Judaism,. and.the Association of
Reform Zionists of America.
The programs fall into, four
categories... programs in Israel
advancing Israeli progressive
institutions, education programs
in Israel for. Diaspora Jewry ;
aliyah and absorption programs,
and programs of. Zionist educa-
tion for the Diaspora. '
Rabbi Charles A. Kroloff,
president of ARZA, noted that
$20 million is less than five per-
cent Of the Jewish Agency
budget, which this year totals
$413 million. It is also substan-
tially less than the Agency's
present allocations to institu-
tions and programs operated by
Orthodox groups in Israel.
Kroloff said that according to
United Jewish Appeal figures,
Orthodox programs are now al-
located approximately $30 mil-
lion, which is 7.4 percent, of the
Agency budget, -while institu-
tions of the'Reform and Conser-
vative movements together re-
ceive 0.64 percent of the budget,
which is less than $3 million.
While individaal Reform in-
stitutions have requisted money
from the Agency in the past,
this is, the first time that a coor-
dinated effort has been made by
the entire Reform 'Movement.
Rabbi Eric Yoffie, executive
director of. ARZA;. said that Re-
form leaders fully.: expect the
Conservative Movement to sub-
mit an application for -funding,
and that in fact they encourage
it to do so. He pointed out that
by most estiniates, Reform and
Conservative Jews provide 80-90
percent of Jewish Agency funds,
and therefore it was not unrea-
sonable ,that a larger percentage
of the Agency. budget should , go •
to Reform and Conservative
programs in Israel.. ..
