mission. Everyone will be
asked to "put aside institu-
tional biases and parochial
fears" in in effort to
"prioritize issues based on
our limited resources."
Tauber told The Jewish
News the commission is
scheduled to begin meeting
in October. He envisions a
first year of study to define
issues and priorities, with
the commission dividing into
subcommittees during the
second year to devise solu-
tions.
Tauber sees the focus of
Federation changing, work-
ing harder to reach all facets
of the Jewish community.
"We will now try to serve as
a moderator, and as an in-
stigator." Part of the solu-
tion, he believes, will be re-
lying heavily on Detroit's
synagogues, B'nai B'rith and
other Jewish organizations to
help solve Jewish problems.
Jewish Welfare Federation
Executive Vice President
Wayne Feinstein followed
Tauber to the podium, re-
marking, "To remain strong
and viable into the next cen-
tury, we must tackle these
issues." Federation is also
forming a Human Resources
Development Committee to
interest people in the work of
Federation and its Jewish
communal agencies.
It plans to "track" the
interest of individuals, to
place persons in "meaningful
volunteer situations" within
the community, whether it
be Federation, synagogue or
agency work, in order to in-
crease the numbers of com-
munal volunteers.

Jackier, commented on
Tauber's proposals. "I have
heard so many things to-
night that we rabbis have
been speaking about ... It is
time that the boundaries be-
tween synagogues and Fed-
eration are removed."
Groner lauded the Jackiers
for their many activities on

children.
Although problems facing
the Jewish community and
the new committees to ad-
dress those issues were a
major emphasis of the meet-
ing, the Butzel Award to the
Jackiers and a listing of
Federation achievements
also took center stage.
Tauber noted that Federa-
tion has concentrated on re-
structuring itself over the
last several years; the an-
nual Allied Jewish Cam-
paign has risen from $18
million to $22 million during
