Federation Allocations Stand Pat

$24.3 million allows for growth of day schools, Hebrew Free Loan
and assistance to Soviet emigrants, but will not bridge Jewish Home's deficit

DAVID HOLZEL

Staff Writer

Each year, the Jewish Welfare
Federation divides millions of dollars
raised from its Allied Jewish Cam-
paign into a pie for more than 40
local, national and international
organizations. Next year's Jewish
Welfare Federation allocation budget
will be $24.3 million, $500,000 more
than last year's total.
Over $7 million will be spent
locally, according to Federation. The
lion's share, over $13 million, will be
channeled to the United Jewish Ap-
peal for programs in Israel and
elsewhere in the Diaspora. An addi-
tional $600,000 is earmarked for na-
tional Jewish organizations. The re-
mainder, over $3 million, will cover
Campaign expenses.
With few exceptions, the new
budget is very similar to last year's.
Locally, the increases and decreases

in the various allocations reflect "the
ebb and flow of needs," according to
James M. August, head of Federa-
tion's Conference of Division
Chairmen. "It is important that (the
distribution) be seen in that context?'
The increase in certain agencies'
allocations reflects the expanding role
they play in the community, August
said. Hebrew Free Loan, for example,
will receive additional funds for this
reason. Its responsibilities expanded
last year with the inauguration of the
Neighborhood Project. The $12,000
allotted above last year's figure will
allow the agency to expand the
number of hours its staff works.
The increase in allocations to
Akiva and Hillel day schools and
Yeshivath Beth Yehudah — each will
receive about $15,000 above last
year's allotment — is due to the in-
creasing enrollment at those institu-
tions, August said. The $15,000
decrease in funding for United

Hebrew Schools is due to the current
lack of a full-time school superinten-
dent and part-time high school
principal.
Possibly the stickiest allocation
on Federation's list is to the
financially-troubled Jewish Home for
the Aged. Some $892,000 is earmark-
ed to the agency, $46,000 more than
last year. But this spring, United
Jewish Charities and Federation
channeled an additional $600,000 in
emergency funds to the Home to help
stem a deficit. In light of the large
sums involved, is another $46,000
merely a drop in the bucket?
"An additional $46,000 is not go-
ing to meet the increased deficit,"
August agreed. And, he predicted, the
Home will "need to go to United
Jewish Charities again as well as its
own endowment" to help meet its
needs. "But it's important to make a
statement to the Home to indicate our
