For Life

In addition to the many so-
cial services funded locally
and in Israel by the Allied
Jewish Campaign of the
Jewish Welfare Federation,
there is a Campaign-funded
lifeline that extends around
the world. This profile, the
eighth in a series, highlights
the work of the Joint Distri-
bution Committee, a major
overseas beneficiary.

Dese'
Person.
The
Leibovic is not one to corn-
Vain. At age 76, he says he
is thankful to be alive,
healthy and living among
other Jews.
It is perhaps a sadly famil-
iar story ... but with a twist.
For Mr. Leibovic lives in
Hungary, a member of the
"remnant" Jewish community
there. A Holocaust survivor,
he lives in a small, rented
room on a meager income.
And yet he says he is a
happy man.
What's his formula for con-
tentment? Leibovic credits
the Jewish adult day pro-
gram he attends, saying it
has made a difference be-
tween his spending long,
lonely hours in his room, and
maintaining his dignity and
zest for life. "I love being
here with my friends," he
says through an interpreter.
"It keeps me busy and I get a
good, kosher lunch every day.
Who can complain?
. Leibovic has 80 "friends" in
this particular program,
which is among the many
services to the aged coordi-
nated by the Central Board of
Hungarian Jews, with fund-
ing from the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee. Like him,
the others'have received help
that goes beyond the daily
program.
On this particular day, the
dignified Leibovic is wearing
a bright red sweater, a "gift"
from the Jewish community.
He says he doesn't mind the
winter weather so much
anymore. And he is equally
proud of his new reading
glasses, which he was helped

Dese' Leibovic

to buy so that he could again
enjoy his books and newspap-
ers.
But most important of all,
he says, is the opportunity to
live as a Jew ... celebrating
the holidays, reading from
the Passover Haggadah. "I
feel I have something to live
for," Leibovic says. "All my
family is gone now and I'm
getting on in years, but at
least I'm not alone."
The Agency. Founded in
1914 to help the Jews of
Palestine and Eastern Europe
during World War I, the
American Jewish Joint Dis-
tribution Committee receives
funds from Detroit's Allied
Jewish Campaign and other
community campaigns
through the United Jewish'
appeal.
' JDC currently provides di-
rect relief and social services
to 400,000 people in 33 coun-
tries. In Eastern, Europe
alone, 150,000 people receive
kosher food, clothing, medical
care, and educational and
religious programming. JDC
reaches into Western Europe,
North Africa, Israel and
South America; services in-
clude rehabilitation for the
handicapped, holiday items
and community center pro-
grams.
