STATEMENT FROM THE

JEWISH WELFARE FEDERATION

The Jewish Welfare Federation of Detroit reaffirms its position that
the unity of the Jewish People — K'lal Yisrael — must be preserved
and that no issue can be allowed to endanger that unity.

THE
JEWISH
NEWS

Serving Detroit's Metropolitan
Jewish Community
with distinction
for four decades.

PUBLISHER:

Our concern grows out of an issue — the definition of who is a Jew
that has taken on political overtones in Israel. We declare our
unequivocal opposition to any political effort to amend the Law of
Return. It is this very Law of Return that has united us in our sup-
port of the reborn state as a haven for all Jews of whatever religious
background.

Recognizing its responsibility to the Jewish community of Detroit,
as well as its duty as part of the larger American Jewish community,
Federation will combat any action that is divisive of Klal Yisrael,
from whatever direction that action emanates. Toward that end, our
leadership helped develop a national strategy at the Council of Jewish
Federations General Assembly and continues to play a critical role
in responding to the issue.

At the same time, the Jewish Welfare Federation views as totally in-
appropriate any effort to exacerbate the situation with conjecture
and name-calling. Rather, this situation requires a thoughtful, as well
as decisive, communal response.

As with every challenge our Detroit Jewish community has faced
in the past, we will act with understanding and integrity. For that
is our strength.
