who are Jews by conversion to
the religious education of their
children has received first-
year funding. Sponsored by
Temple Kol Ami, the program
includes a family retreat, col-
lective holiday observances,
round-table discussions and
seminars, emphasizing both
formal education and informal
opportunities for group and
family interaction.
Two other education pro--
grams have received second-
year funding. One provides
tutorial assistance to
youngsters with learning prob-
lems at Temple Emanu-El; and
the other, in-service training
for the 100 faculty members
who teach 1,700 children at
Temple Israel.
Also approved for continued
support are the Jewish Infor-
mation Service and, for
families of the chronically ill
living at home, Jewish Family
Service's respite care program.
JIS connects potential
clients to local Jewish agencies
by providing information and
referrals. Currently, more
than 200 calls are answered
each Month. The JFS respite
care program provides relief to
families caring for the
chronically ill in their homes.
There are now 45 families
enrolled.
Handleman called attention
to a letter from the Jewish
Association for Retarded Citi-
zens (JARC), which indicated
that the Michigan Department
of Mental Health will provide
$75,000 per year for the next
several years to support the
coordinated intervention serv-
ice for mentally disabled indi-
viduals. Fisher Foundation
support from 1984 through
1986 enabled JARC to seed the
program while other funding
was being sought.
In his annual address, Hand-

leman pointed to Federation's
60th anniversary celebration
and the publication of The
Jews of Detroit: 1762 1914,
written by Dr. Robert Rocka-
way, as highlights of the UJC's
87th year. Both projects were
underwritten by Charities. A
second volume of history has
been started by Dr. Sidney
Bolkosky of the University of
Michigan-Dearborn.
Handleman's report noted
the creation of a $100,000
Leadership Development Fund
in the name of the late Paul
Zuckerman.
Second-year funding was
approved for 15 participants in
Project Otzma, the Jewish
Service Corps. Seven Michigan
students are in Israel for a year
of learning and working in vir-
tually every part of the coun-
try. Upon their return, the stu-
dents will have the opportu-
nity to serve the local Jewish
community by working at local
Jewish agencies.
Another innovative program
that received first-year fund-
ing in 1986 was the Neighbor-
hood Project. UJC allocated
$250,000 to create a housing
incentive fund, which will pro-
vide no-interest loans to
families purchasing homes
within the program's target
areas of Oak Park and South-
field. More than 30 loans have
already been approved.
The UJC has also provided
funds from its Isidore Sobeloff
Community Service Fund for a
Young Leadership Institute,
sponsored by the United
Jewish Appeal Young Leader-
ship Cabinet and the UJA
Young Women's Leadership
Cabinet. Participants are
couples, 30-40 years old, who
have been identified as bright,
active and concerned people
who have potential for com-
munity leadership.
