Hermelin said.
Sherman and Hermelin
spoke to The Jewish News in
advance of a Campaign din-
ner Tuesday for the staffs of
Detroit's Jewish agencies.
If the Campaign stays on
pace, it could reach a record
total in excess of $25 million
to be used for social welfare
projects in Detroit, national-
ly, overseas and Israel. Al-

stressed several areas for
1988: "Involving a lot of peo-

been near the top of their list.
They have reinstituted fund-
raising meetings with major
speakers and entertainers, in-
cluding Tip O'Neil, Elie Wie-
sel and Beverly Sills, and
have emphasized face-to-face

Members of the Jewish
Welfare Federation's Young
Adult Division spoke in-
dividually to contributors in
its pre-Campaign phase, and
averaged $500 gifts. "If we
could get all the divisions to
do that," Sherman said, "I
know we would have a $35
million Campaign." But, with
30-to-40 telethons this Cam-
paign year and face-to-face
meetings, "it means that
