It is the belief of ad man
Gary Wexler, who conceived
the new media campaign,
that the majority of the unaf-
filiated, at least in Los
Angeles, share a closer sense
of Jewish identity with Woody
Allen and Philip Roth than
with the affluent
businessmen and lawyers
who dominate the federation
and synagogue boards.
Special targets among the
unaffiliated are young profes-
sionals, who are more likely
to give to Save the Whales or
Ban Handguns campaigns
than to the United Jewish
Appeal or American Zionist
Federation.
From now through May, the
ads will run in local dailies,
the Wall Street Journal, Time,
Newsweek, Sports Illustrated
and U.S. News and World
Report. Radio spots ..will be
heard during Passover week
on six stations, and 55 bus
shelters will display outdoor
signs.

the ads purposely play off

local needs rather than
Israel's, and they are running
