her always successful message:
"Put aside just a dollar a week
more, and at the end of the
year, you'll have added $50 to
your contribution. It's easy!"
Polina Brayman had a spe-
cial reason for offering her vol-
unteer services on Super Sun-
day: gratitude. Seven years
ago, whenshe immigrated from
the Soviet Union, she was as-
sisted by HIAS—the Hebrew
Immigrant Aid Society—and
by Detroit's Resettlement
Service, two agencies which
receive Allied Jewish Cam-
paign funds. "This is my way of
giving back something of what
I received," she said.
Campaign Chairman Emery
Klein suggested another moti-
vation for commitment: Many
of those he called on the phone
were fellow Holocaust sur-
vivors. "I told them: 'When we
were in the concentration
camps, we prayed that some-
one would help us. Now we live
in freedom. But are we doing
enough to help our fellow Jews
still living in Poland?"'
There were downers—those
who had suffered illnesses or
, business reverses in the pre-
ceding year. Volunteers were
instructed to ask if the com-
munity could' be of help to
them. But there were many
uppers, too, like the retiree

who had been waiting for a call
so he could give $10 more this
year than last.
Throughout the day, the ac-
tion was punctuated by
announcements—and
cheefs—for large increases or
significant new gifts. In the
Young Adult Division, many
such victories contributed to
the 61 percent increase in
Campaign totals. over last
year. For example, when Paul
Magy asked a $30 contributor
for $50, the prospect insisted
on giving $100.
Not everyone manned
phones. Akiva Hebrew Day
School students Yossi Ziffer
and Josh Last acted as run-
ners, delivering completed
pledge cards to the clerical
workers. Josh moved to his
own special beat: Hebrew
music poured from his radio
headphones.
Although they were not paid
for their several hours of work,
v.plunteers did receive a token
for their participation: a
souvenir ballpoint pen with
the inscription, "I helped write
history on Super Sunday."
They received something else:
As one briefer put it, "You're
getting the satisfaction of
knowing that the highest level
of tzedakah is enabling an-
other Jew to give".

The 1986 Allied Jewish
Campaign cash drive yielded
totals "beyond all expecta-
tions."
That assessment came from
1986 Campaign Chairman
Stanley D. Frankel, who said,
"More than $27 million in cash
has been received to date—
$4.3 million more than last
year." Frankel commended
Cash Chairman Marvin H.
Goldman and his committee
for their efforts.
Paul D. Borman, chairman
of the 1986 and 1987 cam-
paigns, said that the record to-
tals reflect the community's
concern for the Jewish poor,
the elderly and Jewish educa-
tion.
In addition to the Cam-
paign's record numbers,
Jewish Welfare Federation
President Dr. Conrad L. Giles,
along with United Jewish
Charities President David
Handleman, announced that
107 new philanthropic funds
were opened in 1986, with 72 of
them coming in December, for
a total exceeding $15 million.
Giles said that the new tax
law was a catalyst, but "the
momentum for the establish-
ment of so many new funds can
only be credited to the
foresight of the endowment de-
partment, and its tax seminar,
which educated area attorneys
and accountants to the benefits

of establishing a philanthropic
fund."
A philanthropic fund allows
the doner to make a gift now,
while suggesting the method of
distributing the funds at a
later date. Handleman noted
that charitable giving remains
one of the few tax deductible
items in 1987.
Handleman also announced
the appointment of George M.
Zeltzer as chairman of the
Endowment Fund. Zeltzer re-
places Mandell L. Berman,
who served as chairman of the
fund since its inception four
years ago.

Syria Warned
About Gas

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin said,
Jan. 27 that Israel has infor-
mation that Syria possesses
chemical weapons more potent
than those used by Iraq in its
war with Iran. He warned
Damascus not even to con-
template chemical warfare
against Israel because it knew
full well what the conse-
quences would be.
Addressing Jerusalem high
school students, Rabin said the
Israel Defense Force has taken
measures to protect soldiers
and civilians.
