UJA Campaign

Continued from Page 1

chairman of the board of
trustees, and UJA President
Stanley Horowitz are in Israel
this week to consult with
Jewish Agency and American
- Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee officials about the
project.
Earlier this month the
three men traveled to
Ladispoli, Italy, where they
spoke with Soviet Jews in
transit camps and met with
officials of the JDC, which
sponsors relief and welfare
programs for Jews around the
world. The JDC receives vir-
tually all its funding from the
UJA.
announcing
Before
authorization of the special
campaign, UJA leaders met
with officials of the Council of
Jewish Federations, the
Jewish Agency and other
organizations involved with
Soviet Jewish emigration.
Several observers said that
representatives of the Jewish
Agency, which oversees funds
allocated to human .service
agencies in Israel, expressed
concern that the campaign
will raise money to be used to
resettle Soviet Jews in the
United States. Although the
vast majority of Soviet Jewish
emigrants opt to come to the
United States, Israeli leaders
have repeatedly said they
belong in Israel.
One local Jewish communal
worker, who asked that his
name not be used, also ex-
pressed frustration that UJA
funds will be used to resettle
Soviet Jews in the United
States.
"Israel is so badly in need
of people," he said. "Helping
more Soviet Jews settle in the
United States will really be
an unfortunate allocation of
funds."
A UJA spokesman said he
is aware that some groups
may be concerned about the
provision to help resettle
Soviet Jews in the United
States, but added that it does
not represent a change in
agency policy.
"We've always supported
Jews going to Israel," he said.
"But at the same time, we
recognize that large numbers
of Soviet Jews are coming to
the United States, and they
need help here."
Help comes from federa-
tions and their constituent
agencies that oversee Soviet
Jewish resettlement. The
amount of money needed to
fund that aid changed
dramatically two years ago
when Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev began allowing
thousands of Jews to
emigrate — a blessing most
Jewish communal organiza-
tions did not anticipate.
Last year, some 19,000 Jews

left the Soviet Union. Twice
that many are expected to
emigrate in 1989.
A UJA spokesman said that
a number of federations, faced
with picking up the tab for
resettling a massive influx of
Soviet Jewish immigrants,
turned to the United Jewish
Appeal and the Council of
Jewish Federations. The CJF,
the umbrella organization for
federations throughout North
America, last month adopted
a resolution encouraging the
UJA to "give serious con-
sideration" to launching a
special campaign for Soviet
Jewry.
The same week the UJA an-
nounced its authorization of
the "Passage to Freedom"
campaign, Soviet Jews were
celebrating the opening of a
new Jewish cultural center in
Moscow.
_ Yet a UJA spokesman said
the agency is not interested in
taking chances. Now that the
opportunity exists for Jews
who want to leave the Soviet
Union to do so, the Jewish
community must help them.
resettle elsewhere, he said.
While UJA officials said
they will not speculate as to
When the special campaign
will begin, they are optimistic
about its success. They said
the money raised will be used
to fund such projects as
medical care, Jewish educa-
tion and job retraining for the
Soviet immigrants.
The majority of Jewish com-
munal leaders both in Detroit
and elsewhere said they
welcome the campaign and do
not expect it to affect their
own fund-raising.
"We've always found the
community to be so open and
giving," said Shayna Silver-
man of the Detroit chapter of
the American Friends of the
Hebrew University. "I don't
expect this will stop them."
"Our fund-raising is
specialized and we have a
public very much devoted to
us," said Alex Ross, director of
public relations with the na-
tional office of the American
Committee for the Weizmann
Institute. "We don't an-
ticipate the (UJA) campaign
taking anything away from
us."
"Psychologically, it will pro-
bably even help us because it
will generate excitement and
concern," said Bob Wade,
director of public relations for
the national office of the
American Friends of the
Hebrew University.
"And besides," he said,
"there's a real pool of
generosity out there. We
believe the Jewish communi-
ty has tremendous potential
for growth."
