THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

"You have to remember
that part of the funds goes to
Israel and to overseas needs
via the Jewish Agency for Is-
rael and the American
Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee," said Stuart
Hertzberg, chairman of the
community services budget-
ing and planning division for
federation. Kraar said that
54 percent of Campaign funds
has gone to national and in-
ternational needs for the last
few years, and 46 percent has
been expended on local needs.
Local agencies that are
funded through Hertzberg's
budgeting unit include the
Jewish Home for Aged, He-
brew Free Loan, Jewish
Vocational Service (JVS) and
Jewish Family Service (JFS),
and Hertzberg foresees major
needs in the coming year.
The Home For Aged has a
$600,000 deficit this year
"and will have a larger de-
ficit next year"; Hebrew Free
Loan has taken an active role
in the Neighborhood Project
in Oak Park and Southfield
"and will make demands that
they have not had to make in
the past"; JVS may have a
deficit for the first time in
many years because of a
smaller share of government
and private contracts that
have funded the agency's
services in the past; and the
respite care program operated
by JFS "has been enormously
successful, but demand is
mounting."
A major local factor that is
presently a budgeting un-
known is the possible influx
of Soviet Jewish emigres if
the Russians allow increasing
numbers of Jews to leave. "If
there is a significant influx,"
Hertzberg said, "we would
get a government block grant
like in the late 1970s, but at
this point we don't know how
many people or how much
money."
Peter Alter, who heads the
culture and education budget-

ing unit, is cautious about
calling for more funding for
local needs. "I'm a strong ad-
vocate for increased spending
on Jewish education, but I
wouldn't advocate spending
at the expense of other agen-
cies." Agencies under the cul-
ture and education unit in-
clude the Jewish Community
Center, Fresh Air Society,
Hillel foundations at the
University of Michigan,
Wayne State University and
Michigan State, and the
three Jewish day schools:
Hillel, Akiva and Yeshivath
Beth Yehudah.
Alter believes the unit will
also receive a request this
ye-ar from Yeshiva Gedolah,
and the Federation's Task
Force on Identity and Affilia-
tion may also recommend
new projects.
Hertzberg commented that
Detroit "hasn't had a flat
Campaign in years, and each
year we've been able to main-
tain our local programs and
add on." He warned, however,
that local agencies will have
to be careful with budget re-
quests because of increasing
needs across the Jewish spec-
trum.
Alter concurs. "The process
works rather well. Certainly
our agencies can utilize more
funds effectively. As a com-
munity we are doing a good
job, utilizing our existing
funds wisely. But we will
have to creatively order our
priorities with whatever
funds we have."

New York (JTA) — The
Syrian government has re-
leased five Jews detained in
Syrian prisons, according to
former President Jimmy Car-
ter, who recenty visited the
Middle East and was asked to
intercede in their behalf by
the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith.
