Ben-Baruch, referring to the
two-tiered membership
classifications which
distinguishes between voting
and non-voting members bas-
ed on UJA pledges.
Ben-Baruch, White and
others see the proposed
reforms as one way in which
the Ann Arbor community
can allow for the expression of
more diversity, reflecting the
community at large.
"If the community con-
tinues to be exclusive or ex-

clusionary, the numbers of
disaffected will increase and
confrontations will be more
bitter," says Ben-Baruch.
Others don't see it that way
at all and think that that's
merely a minority opinion
that would create further
divisiveness. Ben-Baruch ad-
mits to the contentiousness
implied in some of the con-
cerns he and others have
brought to the JCA/UJA.
!We're dissidents within the
Jewish community because
we have a broader, more in-
clusive vision both in terms of
defining ourselves as a com-
munity and in defining the
types of things we think
should be going on in the
community," he said.
Many of the issues that con-
front Ann Arbor are not
special to it. "People have
been this way before?' noted
Judith Elkin.
The three issues that Stone
called the focus of concern for
small cities in the Federation
— the enhancement of Jewish
identity, Jewish family life
and providing Jewish services
— are major issues facing Ann
Arbor. And that's one reason
some see the federation
alliance as an especially im-

portant one.
"We could draw from com-
munities our size," says Schte-
ingart. "We can contribute to
the dialogue going on around
the country?'
