FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1989

Everyone is looking for a
gimmick to draw attention to
the issue; a tactic with which
to attract a constituency,
Golan said.
She says she has "a little
problem" with those who
refuse to serve in the ter-
ritories. "If you don't serve,
you might as well turn in
your passport and leave,
you've really said no to Israeli
society."
But depending on how one
reads the polls, counts the
number of members of Knes-
set, or divines the meaning of
a size of a rally, one might
conclude that most of Israeli
society has said no to Peace
Now. With its annual budget
of $300,000, most of it raised
in the U.S. and Europe, the
organization will be able to
continue its high profile cam-
paign to push Israel to the
table with the PLO.
But will it make a differ-
ence?
.
"Polls show the public is un-
happy and realizes that
something has to give," Golan
says. The problem her group
has not licked, is how to con-
vert public sentiment into
public change. 0

plained the group had no
answer to the uprising.
Galia Golan recalls the am-
bivalence. "There was a cer-
tain defense of what was go-
ing on. There was a feeling on
the part of most Israelis that
`They are throwing stones
and we have to respond.' "
Smaller, more radical
groups stepped into the
vacuum. They had names like
Women in Black, the 21st
Year (since Israel occupied the
territories), Dai Lakibush
(End the Occupation) and
Yesh G'vul (There is a Limit,
or Border, founded during the
Lebanon War). These groups
advocate an end to the
occupation and encourage
Israeli soldiers to refuse to
serve in the territories.
Galili says because these
groups advocate breaking the
law, • Peace Now tries to
distance itself from them. But
Golan says she Considers all
the peace groups to be part of
the same camp, working for a
common goal. The rise of the
small groups is a result not of
a vacuum, but of frustration
with the lack of political
movement on the Palestinian
issue.

Society, which provides all
legal documentation for
emigration to the United
States, needs double its an-
nual budget, Giles said. The
Jewish Agency, responsible
for settling Soviet Jews in
Israel, had to slash other pro-
grams to provide temporary
housing and other services to
the immigrants, he said.

This year, Detroit will set-
tle some 150 Soviet Jewish
immigrants. Cities with
larger Jewish populations
will accept proportionally
larger numbers.
Sherman said she does not
expect the emergency effort to
adversely impact local agen-
cy social services or Detroit's
regular allocations to Israel.

Federation Statement

On the eve of Passover, our Festival of Freedom, the
Jewish People is experiencing an exodus for which we have
struggled and prayed.
Two years ago, 1,000 Detroiters joined with 250,000
other Americans to demand freedom for Soviet Jewry. To
our joy, our voices were heard.
The emigration of thousands of Soviet Jews will be the
last great Jewish migration of this century. We are
privileged to have been given a share in their passage to
freedom.
Still, we must not be lulled by this extraordinary
event. Many thousands of Soviet Jews still wait, their ex-
it visa applications rejected. Reports of bitter anti-
Semitism continue throughout the Soviet Union, and no
one knows when the doors could again swing shut.
We have an opportunity to unite families, to bring cur
people together in an historic and momentous
undertaking.
The Jewish community of Detroit always has fulfilled
its responsibilities toward our brothers and sisters in need
throughout the world. Our cherished Jewish values will
guide us to act with charity and justice toward our fellow
Jews from the Soviet Union.
