have worked closely with him
on a number of issues in the
past."
Activists with other Jewish
groups were less diplomatic.
"It was a slap in the face,"
said the Washington
representative of one major
Jewish organization. "Walker
is someone we've worked with
over the years; we thought we
had clear lines of communica-
tion open to him. This more
or less blindsided us."
Walker declined to com-
ment on the controversy and
indicated through a
spokesman that he was con-
tacting Jewish groups
privately to discuss the
situation.
But according to Sislen, the
JCC has not been contacted
by Walker's office. Represen-
tatives of other Jewish groups
here were equally in the dark
about Walker's plans to patch
up relations.

UJA Fights
Proposed Cuts
In Energy Aid

Despite the great Sunbelt
migrations, American Jews
remain heavily concentrated
in large northern cities — and
therefore heavily burdened by
high energy costs.
So when President Bush's
proposed budget called for
cuts in a little-known pro-
gram to provide energy

George Bush:
Wants to cut energy funds.

assistance for low-income
families, some Jewish groups
headed straight for Capitol
Hill.
"What we find is that many
lower income Jewish people
take advantage of the Low In-
come Energy Assistance Pro-

gram," said Susan Banes
Harris, director of the
Washington office of the UJF
Federation of New York.
The administration wants
to cut the program from $1.4
billion to $1.1 billion.
"What's important to
remember," Harris said, "is
that funding for this program
hasn't changed in several
years. So in effect, it's been
cut through inflation."
Jewish organizations in
some cities are also providing
energy assistance for low-
income clients. "And with the
tremendous additional
burdens caused by the need to
resettle thousands of new
Soviet refugees, and flat fund-
raising campaigns in some
areas, Jewish groups will
have a very difficult time
making up the difference if
the federal program is cut,"
Harris said.
Currently, Harris and other
Jewish representatives are
working with the House ap-
propriations committee, try-
ing to ensure continued fun-
ding at the full level for the
energy assistance program.

Jewish Groups
Sit Out
`Soweto' March

Jewish groups are playing
an active role in this week's
activities marking the 13th
anniversary of the Soweto
massacre in South Africa, an
event designed to focus atten-
tion on the faltering Congres-
sional effort to pass tough
new sanctions against the
government's apartheid
policies.
On Friday, a coalition of
anti-apartheid groups was
scheduled for a round of
Capitol Hill meetings. Includ-
ed were two major Jewish
groups — the National Coun-
cil of Jewish Women and the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations.
But the Jewish groups were
unable to participate in a
march through downtown
Washington, another part of
the Soweto lobbying effort,
because it was scheduled for
Saturday.
The recent pro-democracy
movement in China, accor-
ding to some Jewish activists,
only points to the need for an
equally outspoken response
from the Bush administration
on the human rights crisis in
South Africa.
NCJW and UAHC are both
supporting a tough new sanc-
tions bill.
