peel, with cinnamon candies,
with licorice. My wardrobe was
getting tighter and tighter.
Something had to give.
Finally I had an inspiration.
I phoned my sister-in-law. "Di-
ane," I exhorted her, "Golda
has had a hard life. She lost her
whole family in the Holocaust.
She had, to learn a new lan-
guage — and she's no linguist.
Let's let her feel that at least at
baking mandelbrot she's a suc-
cess. I'm going to tell her we all
love her mandelbrot. Then
maybe I won't have to eat any
more of it.
There was a humph at the
other end of the line. Then the

appeal to Diane's better nature
won out. "I'm tired of making
mandelbrot anyway," she con-
ceded. "If she wants to show off,
let her."
At the next family dinner
Golda brought more mandel-
brot, but Diane arrived with a
new concoction, chocolate
cookies. They were delicious,
and I took pains to say so veh-
emently. But it was obvious
that Diane, having withdrawn
from the mandelbrot contest,
was even more set against
Golda than ever. "Mandelbrot
is so passe," was her parting
shot, sotto voce, when the des-
serts were served.

Jewish Voluntarism
Shrinking Nationwide

STEVEN A. COHEN

Special to The Jewish News

W

altham, Mass. —
The vast majority of
Jewish adults no
longer volunteer their time
and services, either for Jewish
organizations or the non-
Jewish community, according
to Gary A. Tobin, director of
the Center for Modern Jewish
Studies at Brandeis Univer-
sity.
_ This means that the nation-
wide network of Jewish organ-
izations that depend on volun-
teers for fundraising and serv-
ice delivery "need to find new
ways to attract volunteers,"
said Tobin. "Otherwise, some
may not survive at all, and
others won't be able to carry
out their responsibilities."
Tobin's conclusions are
based on demographic studies
undertaken by the center in
cooperation with local Jewish
federations.
Why so few volunteers? "The
most common response, when
asked why they didn't volun-
teer, was that they were too
busy," Tobin said. "The second
most common response was
that nobody had asked them to
volunteer."
"There always have been
people who volunteer and lose
interest, and there are those
who never have volunteered
and never will," Tobin contin-
ued. "But one interesting
change we are looking at is
that Jewish women are less
likely to volunteer today than
in the past.
"Many women used to track
into volunteer work fairly
early in life, after marriage
and having children. But now
they are getting married later
and having their children la-
ter.
"In addition, many more are
working outside the home for
pay, and Jewish organizations
haven't adjusted to accommo-
date them.
"Do they have volunteer
meetings that working people

can attend, or do they still meet
in the morning? Do they create
volunteer roles that managers
are comfortable with, or do
they still expect everyone to
cut lettuce? The answer is,
they haven't adjusted.
"As we move into the next
decade, fundraising and serv-
ice delivery in the Jewish
community still will be based
on voluntarism. If these organ-
izations don't adjust and find
new ways to attract volun-
teers, they won't succeed."

Kreisky Resigns
From Socialist
Party Posts

Vienna (JTA) — Former
Chancellor Bruno Kreisky
last week resigned from his
posts in the Socialist Party to
protest the selection of Peo-
ple's Party leader Alois Mock
as Foreign Minister. The two
parties comprise Austria's
coalition government.
Socialist leaders said they
hoped Kreisky would recon-
sider his decision to step
down as honorary chairman
of the party and president of
the Institute for Interna-
tional Policy and the Renner
Institute, his party's
academy.
According to a Socialist
daily newspaper, Kreisky said
he couldn't go along with a
foreign policy designed by
Mock, who was head of the
People's Party during Kurt
Waldheim's successful run for
the Presidency last spring
and summer. Ugly anti-
Semitic statements surfaced
during the campaign as the
World Jewish Congress re-
peatedly raised questions
about Waldheim's Nazi af-
filiations and military ac-
tivities during World War II.
