Doreen Hermelin accepts the first "Freddie" for the Women's Division
from her husband David and Jane Sherman.

ed the Campaign closing to
the Passover — Holocaust
remembrance — Israel an-
niversary season. "Our an-
guish (over Arab disturbances
in Israel and the territories)
is Israel's anguish," he said,
"but we will make certain
that the quality of Jewish life
will be enhanced within its
borders."
Hermelin kept the fast-
paced, formal portion of the
program light, telling jokes
and fundraising stories while
a grease-painted, tuxedoed
mime held "applause" and
"shhh ." signs.
Dr. Giles and Lawrence
Jackier accepted an award on
behalf of the community from
the national United Jewish
Appeal. Presented by Sher-
man, who is completing her
service as national Project
Renewal chairman, the award
cited Detroit for raising $7.3
million over seven years for
renewal projects in Ramle and
Yavneh, Israel. The $7.3
million is the largest amount
raised outside of New York
City.
Hermelin's wife, Doreen, ac-
cepted the "Freddie," named
for Federation founder Fred
Butzel, on behalf of the Wo-
men's Division which she
chairs. The Freddie will be
given annually to the division
which contacts the highest
percentage of its contributors
before the Campaign closing.
Adding to the levity of the
evening was a brief tune
played on kazoos by Cam-
paign leaders throughout the
audience, orchestrated by
Sherman and Hermelin at
the podium. Their perfor-
mance was listed on the pro-
gram as a "musical in-
terlude" by the "Detroit Sym-
phony Orchestra (or other)."
Martin Kraar, executive
vice president of Federation,
announced that the Cam-

paign had secured 15,418
pledges by the time of the
closing, representing
$24,224,000. At the same
time last year $22 million
had been pledged. Some 2,836
persons who contributed $2
million last year remain to be
contacted for the 1988 Cam-
paign.
Dr. Giles paid tribute to
the Campaign leadership of
Hermelin and Sherman, pre-
senting them with sculptures
in the shape of the Freddie.
Sherman will return as Cam-
paign chairman for 1989, Dr.
Giles announced, but Herme-
lin is stepping down from the
position and will be replaced
by Paul Borman, who co-
chaired the $100,000 section
this year.

Shitrit Named
To Agency

New York (JTA) — Diaspora
leaders approved the nomina-
tion of Meir Shitrit, mayor of
the Israeli development town
of Yavneh, to the post of
treasurer of the World Zionist
Organization-Jewish Agency
executive. He now awaits the
approval of his own Herut
party and formal election in
June, both of which are
expected.
The Diaspora leaders,
members of the Jewish Agen-
cy board of governors, last
week exercised their power to
"advise and consent" in re-
jecting at least four previous
candidates for the number-
two job at the massive social
service agency. Their choice is
a 40-year-old member of
Knesset who is considered
one of the most dynamic of a
new wave of young Sephardic
leaders.
