League colleges, four of the
schools have or have had
Jewish presidents. This in-
cludes former University of
Michigan President Harold
Shapiro who is now at
Princeton. Singer said the
student population at
Princeton is now one-third
Jewish.
• A number of events in re-
cent years could have led to
increased anti-Sermitism.
These include the Arab oil
embargos, the conviction of
Jonathan Pollard of spying
in the United States for
Israel, and financial scan-
dals involving Ivan Boesky
and savings and loans in
Maryland and Ohio. Despite
these incidents, anti-
Semitism remains low.
• Since World War II, there
has been a taboo in the
United States regarding an-
ti-Semitic comments in
public.
"Twenty percent of the
American public believe

Up to 75 percent
of Jews say that
anti-Semitism is a
major problem in
America. Their
thinking defies
every recent study
by researchers.

Jews have a dual loyalty (to
the United States and
Israel)," Singer said, "and
eight percent say Jews have
too much power. But if you
ask Jews, up to 75 percent
say that anti-Semitism is a
major problem in America.
"Although people say Jews
have too much power, they
also say Hispanics are the
only minority group with
less power. Blacks and
Catholics rank higher in all
the surveys."
Singer said researchers
can not define the disparity
between opinion polls and
Jewish attitudes on anti-
Semitism without further
research. "Give me $600,000
and I can give you an an-
swer," he said.
His conclusions, however,
were met with some skep-
ticism by members of the
audience. One 40-year
member of the Anti-
Defamation League said fa-
cetiously that Singer's
remarks would lead him to
call for the dissolution of the
ADL, the American Jewish
Committee and American
Jewish Congress. Others
cited the rise of neo-Nazi
skinheads and vandalism
incidents in recent years to
reject the researchers' fin-
dings. ❑

SOME PEOPLE GET
ALL THE BREAKS

Let's talk turkey. It takes more than luck to get a tax break. And this is
the time of year to demonstrate your foresight in financial planning.

It's plain smart to create an endowment fund to benefit your
community and your family's future. But it's brilliant to do yourself a
favor at tax time.

Call the Federated Endowment Fund of United Jewish Charities,
965-3939. They'll show you how to get the most for your charitable
dollar.

And that's no gobbledy-gook.
