received funding at a recent
meeting of the United Jewish
Charities board of directors.
The United Jewish
Charities, headed by Presi-
dent Samuel Frankel, works
in partnership with the
Jewish Welfare Federation to
make resources available for
special community needs.
Board members aproved
$97,300 for four experimental
projects from the UJC's Max
M. Fisher Jewish Communi-
ty Foundation. Three of the
projects — a care manage-
ment program for the frail
elderly living at home, a
University of Michigan train-
ing program for Jewish com-
munal service personnel and
a weekend learning program
for Hillel Day School
graduates — are continua-
tions of pilot programs fund-
ed last year by the Fisher
Foundation.
A fourth foundation-funded
program is the new "Dis-
covery Room" at the Jewish
Community Center, a hands-
on activity center for young
children and their parents
featuring Jewish symbols,
multi-media resources, pro-
jects and other activities to
foster identity and affiliation.
Detroit is one of five ex-
perimental communties selec-
ted to participate in this
project.

United Jewish Charities ap-
proved $10,000 as seed money
for the newly formed
American-Israel Education
Institute of Michigan, which
will reach out to the state's
business community and
enhance awareness of Israel
in the general community.
Fourth-year funding for the
Otzma Jewish Service Corps
was approved by United
Jewish Charities. Twenty
young Detroiters have spent
a year in Israel with Otzma,
and eight more will leave by
the end of this month to
study, travel and participate
in service projects. A total of
$25,000 was granted for the
subsidized program.

Another program which en-
courages young people to
choose Jewish communal ser-
vice careers — the Federation
Executive
Recruitment
Educational
Program
(FEREP) — was allocated
$25,000. FEREP, which is
operated by the national
Council of Jewish Federa-
tions, offers financial
assistance for students in

graduate programs in Jewish
communal service.
The Center for Judaic
Studies at Wayne State
University received $45,200
for its second year of program-
ming, including visiting
scholars, teacher training
seminars and classes.
With $12,500 in UJC funds,
a Raoul Wallenberg Medal
and Lecture in the
humanities will be created at
the University of Michigan.
The grant will help establish
a permanent endowment
fund to inaugurate an annual
lecture and graduate
fellowship perpetuating
Wallenberg's humanitarian
values and the cause of
human rights.
In other action, United

Jewish Charities approved a
budget of $165,000 for The
Neighborhood Project, whose
interest-free loans have
enabled more than 270 per-
sons to purchase homes in
Oak Park and Southfield.
UJC allocated $25,000 for
the community shaliach
(Israel Resource Center) pro-
gram, which has completed
two years under Federation
auspices. The program has ex-
panded Israel-overseas rela-
tionships and reached out to
adults and young people.
Funding for all these pro-
grams comes out of earnings
from United Jewish Charities
investments, as well as con-
tributions and earnings from
UJC's Federated Endowment
Fund.
