President. Rabbinical Commission
of the Jewish Community Council
of Metropolitan Detroit

For 60 years, the Allied Jewish Campaign has been the
Detroit Jewish community's lifeline to our people in need of
rescue and rehabilitation.
Together with our •ellow Jews at home and around the
world, we have participated in a partnership that has no equal
in the history of any other people. A partnership based on the
shared values of our faith and our heritage. A Partnership
for Life.
What we do in this magnificent community undertaking is more than giving charity. Tzedakah
is doing justice. It is saving a life — pidyon shevuyim — as we have seen in the dramatic rescue
and absorption of Ethiopian Jews in Israel. It is helping the needy to sustain themselves in remnant
communities of Eastern Europe. It is instilling hope where once there was none in our Project
Renewal neighborhood of Ramla. It is honbring our parents by ensuring lives of dignity in their old
age.
And, just as important, it is assuring the continuity of the Jewish People — a task that has
assumed special meaning after the Holocaust. We cannot bring back the destroyed communities
where Jewish life had thrived for centuries. But we can — through our partnership — seek to
recreate the vibrancy of that life. We owe it to those who perished. And we owe it to our children.

For them, and for our fellow Jews everywhere, we must dedicate ourselves and our resources.

We,the congregational rabbis of Detroit, do hereby reaffirm:
It is the obligation and privilege of every congregation to cooperate in every possible way with
the Jewish Welfare Federation in its 1986 Allied Jewish Campaign, which will help meet the needs
of Jews in Detroit, in Israel and throughout the world.
We do further reaffirm that it is the privilege and obligation of every Jewish man and woman to
give as generously as possible to the Allied Jewish Campaign, which serves to support the network
of agencies here in Detroit for every person to utilize as they are needed.
We therefore designate Friday evening, January 31*, and Saturday, February 1, as Campaign-
Federation Sabbath, as a reminder that we are united — in our peoplehood and in our support of
the 1986 Allied Jewish Campaign. Further, we urge every member of our community to answer
the call on Super Sunday — February 2 — on behalf of our fellow Jews. -
