Martin, The Original

Throughout its history the Martin Dreadnought guitar
has become so well known that other guitar makers have
copied its shape and dimensions. Competitors have
duplicated the size but have yet to recreate the heritage
and sound that comes from within. Although produced by
nearly all guitar makers here and abroad the Dreadnought
design remains an original Martin innovation that dates
back to 1916. Try A Martin Guitar today at:

Around the world, Cam-
paign funds are needed to
maintain a lifeline to Jews,
many of them elderly, who
otherwise would be alone.
The Joint Distribution Corn-
mittee (JDC), a major Cam-
paign beneficiary, provides
direct relief and social ser-
vices — including food,
shelter, education and
medical supplies — to Jewish
communities in 34 countries.
During Israel's 40 years of
existence, the country has ab-
sorbed 1.8 million im-
migrants, including 16,000
Ethiopians rescued in Opea-
tion Moses. Youth Aliyah re-
mains Israel's major institu-
tion for taking care of
children — the homeless, the
orphaned and those who have
no one else to care for them.
Funds also support education,
aid to elderly and other
human services.
Eight years ago, the Detroit
Jewish community undertook
its first Project Renewal
neighborhood in Israel. With
the completion of the Ramla
project, Detroit has under-
taken a second Project
Renewal partnership in
Yavneh. Plans include a new
park, construction of a day
care center, a senior citizens'
center and a community
center, as well as cultural and
social programs.
Federation president Dr.
Conrad Giles explained that
the Detroit Jewish communi-
ty can budget for its 1989
needs only if it knows now
how much money will be corn-
ing in through the Campaign.
That point was emphasized
by Campaign chairmen Jane
Sherman and Paul Borman,
who said the strength of the
community depends upon
every one of its members
"standing up now to make a
pledge."
Prospective contributors
not reached on Super Sunday
will still have an opportunity
to pledge Dec. 18, when addi-
tional workers will be on the
phones.

Monday Opening

Super Sunday will kick off
a week of events to benefit the
1989 Allied Jewish
Campaign.
The Campaign officially
opens Monday, when Pulitzer
Prize-winning columnist and
TV commentator George Will
adresses Campaign con-
tributors of $1,000 and over at
Thmple Beth El. Beginning at
7 p.m., the event includes
cocktails and hors d'oeuvres,
with a dessert reception
following the meeting. Reser-
vations are required.

On Thursday, the Cam-
paign's Human Services/Com-
munal Services Section will
meet at the home of Joel and
Shelley Tauber in West
Bloomfield.
Beginning at 7:30 p.m., the
dessert-buffet meeting is by
invitation to all Detroit area
Jewish communal profes-
sionals. Several community
leaders who have recently
returned from a mission to
the Soviet Union will address
the group.
In addition, a musical pro-
gram by Russian emigres

Nikolai and Ludmila
Lemberg, performing on flute
and piano, will also be
featured.
On Dec. 18, Campaign
volunteers will participate in
the first annual Bagel and
Pledge Card Thlethon, 9:30
a.m. to noon, in an attempt to
reach anyone who wasn't con-
tacted on Super Sunday.
Volunteers will also be calling
for new gifts and year-end
cash payments.

Federation
Withholds Funds

Atlanta — The Jewish
Federation of Atlanta will
temporarily withhold
1989-1990 funds from Israel
"until the issue of the Law of
Return is satisfactorily
resolved to the consensus of
our community," federation
officials said in a recent
statement.
Orthodox parties in Israel
are seeking to amend the Law
of Return to exclude non-
halachically converted Jews
from becoming Israeli
citizens.
Schwartz,
Carmi
spokesman for the Council of
Jewish Federations, called
the Atlanta move the
strongest statement on the
issue he has seen to date.
Meanwhile, the Federation
of Pittsburgh also is reported-
ly considering withholding
funds from Israel until the
"Who is a Jew" issue is
settled.
