THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

MOPAC

Continued from Page 1

criticized for supporting can-
didates who strongly back Is-
rael but who are detrimental
to Jewish interests at home.
State budget director Bob
Naftaly, who is treasurer of
MOPAC, emphasized the
point: "Israel is important,
but it is also important for us
to evaluate a candidate's
stance on constitutional liber-
ties, church-state separation
and other issues important to
minorities in this country ...
"Our sense was that there
are races around the country
that are important. There are
races where candidates do not
believe in a pluralistic
society, who believe in prayer
in the public schools, who
want to tell us how to pray."
In some cases, MOPAC has
withheld funds from a Demo-
cratic challenger who is op-
posing a Republican with a
strong record in these areas.
Emery Klein told The Jewish
News that MOPAC would not
support the Democratic oppo-
nent of Sen. Arlen Specter
(R-Pa.) for this reason. But
MOPAC is backing the
Democratic opponent of Sen.
Paula Hawkins (R-Fla.). "She
has a very good record on Is-
rael," Klein said, "but she is
very bad on other issues."
Klein's idea for a local
Jewish PAC began to germi-
nate during the 1984 na-
tional elections. He watched

Bob Naftaly

Detroit Republican fundrais-
ers Max Fisher, Ed Levy Jr.
and Paul Borman organize
local support for Republican
candidates in Michigan and
elsewhere.
Locally, Jewish Democrats
in 1984 held fundraisers for
Paul Simon's successful Se-
nate bid in Illinois to unseat
Charles Percy, and for Gov.
Hunt's unsuccessful bid in
North Carolina to unseat
Jesse Helms. This year, many
Jewish Democrats are placing
their main fundraising efforts
through MOPAC. Separate
fundraisers have been held,
however, for Sen. Allan
Cranston of California, Gov.
John Evans of Idaho and Rep.
Tom Daschle of South
Dakota.
More funds can be donated
to the candidates through the
separate fundraisers, Klein
said. Election laws limit
PACs to $5,000 per candidate

in the primary and $5,000
during the general election.
"With Cranston, Evans and
Daschle," Klein said, "we felt
we had to do more because
these are important races."
Cranston has been considered
a key friend in the Senate;
Evans is opposing incumbent
Sen. Steven Symms, who
MOPAC considers a key Arab
supporter; and Daschle's op-
ponent, incumbent Sen.
James Abdnor, has a record
like Symms'.
In recent weeks, MOPAC
has added to its list for sup-
port: Brooks Adams in Wash-
ington, running against in-
cumbent Sen. Slade Gorton;
incumbent Sen. Alan Dixon
of Illinois "because of the
LaRouche situation"; and
Democratic challenger Wyche
Fowler, who just won the
Georgia primary.
Klein said MOPAC allows
area Jews to maximize input
into the election campaign.
"We study the candidates and
don't make any hasty deci-
sions. Having a PAC allows
us to answer the many re-
quests we receive as indi-
viduals: 'Who would I vote
for?' or 'Who should I sup-
port?'
"Giving a major contribu-
tion (from a PAC) also carries
greater weight than indi-
vidual contributions of $75,
$100, or $150. The candidate
will remember where the
funds came from, and you ac-
complish more of what you
are trying to do ... If you
want to help a friend, you
have to be a friend."
As a first-year PAC, Klein
believes MOPAC has done
very well, "but quite frankly
I was hoping to raise more
money." He added that
MOPAC has received some
contributions from Jewish
Republicans, but declined to
identify them. "Just as I, as
an individual, have contrib-
uted to some Republican can-
didates, so have some Repub-
lican supporters contributed
to MOPAC."
MOPAC's officers include
Klein, Mandell L. Berman,
Lawrence S. Jackier, David
Mondry, Jack A. Robinson,
Laurence B. Deitch, Naftaly,
Jane Sherman and Dr. Sid-
ney A. Lutz. The group also
has a nine-member executive
committee and 17 members
on its board of directors.
