FRIDAY, MARCH 31, 1989

According to Allied Jewish
Campaign Chairmen Jane
Sherman and Paul Borman,
the budgeting divisions of the
Jewish Welfare Federation
are already at work, figuring
how to match 1989 Campaign
dollars to community needs.
In 1988, $25.8 million was
allocated for the Campaign's
60 local and overseas
Although the 1989 Cam-
paign, which ends in two
weeks, promises to surpass
last year, additional funds are
needed to provide vital ser-
vices through JWF agencies,
Sherman said. These agen-
cies report an increase in the
number of elderly clients and
young people seeking
counseling, education and
other services.
The Jewish Home for Aged
could accommodate more frail
elderly persons if more funds
were available, she said.
Thirty dollars will supple-
ment a Borman Hall resident
who is receiving Medicaid,
but low state Medicaid
payments have added con-
siderable burdens to the JHA
Borman said $75 will cover
meals for four weeks for one
child at a Tamarack camp,
$136 will provide a troubled
child with two counseling ses-
sions at Jewish Family Ser-
vice and $360 will pay for six
months of Jewish education
for a learning disabled child
at the United Hebrew
"Within the year, Resettle-
ment Service expects 150 or
more refugees from the Soviet
Union," he said. "They are
among the thousands whose
freedom our community has
been struggling to obtain for
many years. Resettlement
Service with other JWF agen-

organizations will be working
together to help them adjust
to their new lives here."
In addition to local pro-
grams, Allied Jewish Cam-
paign funds enable many
thousands overseas to receive
medical assistance, educa-
tion, food and clothing, said
Sherman. "In Israel, our
dollars help resettle im-
migrants, give hope to disad-
vantaged families and
develop settlements in the
Negev and Galilee.
"Lack of funds will mean
cutbacks in vital overseas pro-
grams and in Israel," Sher-

A record total will
not match
increasing needs
at home and

man said, "unless we can
make a difference through
the Allied Jewish Campaign."
For budgeting purposes, it
is essential to know the total
number of dollars pledged,
she added. Therefore, pledges
should be made as soon as
possible. Arrangements can
be made for those wishing to
defer payment until the end
of the year.
The 1989 Allied Jewish
Campaign's annual celebra-
tion for volunteers and con-
tributors will have a Hall of
Fame theme on April 12 at
Temple Israel. Singer/human
rights activist Mary Travers
will be the guest performer.
Set for 7 p.m., the program
will be preceded by a cocktail
buffet and followed by a
dessert reception. All con-
tributors to the 1989 Cam-
paign are eligible to attend.

Speak Any Russian?
You Could Do Mitzvah

No? Well, how
about Farshtay a
bissel Yiddish?
If you do either one — that
is, speak any Russian or any
Yiddish — May Nosanchuk
and Sinai Hospital want you
to call. And do it quickly.
The reason? Newly arriving
Soviet Jewish immigrants are
coming to Sinai for physical
examinations — as provided

under the Jewish Family Ser-
vice's Resettlement program
— in increasing numbers, but
there aren't enough volunteer
interpreters to help them
through the visits.
Mrs. Nosanchuk, chairper-
son of Sinai's interpreting
department, said her
numbers have greatly
diminished (she can use 30
during a year) due to either
death or winter vacations and
she needs some Detroiters —
-nen and women — to do a
