group of Michigan
State University
students are hoping a
phonathon and raffle party
will help them raise a cam-
pus-record $8,000 in behalf
of the United Jewish Appeal
Student Campaign.
The MSU campaign's ex-
ecutive committee, co-
chaired by Jeff Block of West
Bloomfield and Jodi Leavitt
of East Brunswick, N.J., is
planning the campus
phonathon Feb. 5-6-7 follow-
ed by a Feb. 15 post-
campaign raffle party, at
which the organizers hope to
award a semester's tuition
and books as grand prize.
Last year's campaign
phonathon raised $2,000 in
pledges, which is believed to
be the campus record, accor-
ding to Eric Gilbert, MSU
Hillel's program director.
Hillel works with the
Detroit Jewish Welfare Fed-
eration and Chicago UJA of-
fices in coordinating the
MSU campaign.
The 1988-89 phonathon
was quite successful despite
being a last-minute event,
said Gilbert. In contrast, this
year's MSU executive corn-
mittee "is very well organiz-
ed and the members work
well together. The Chicago
office is very impressed with
them.
"They've been laying the
groundwork since
September, working out the
details of the phonathon and
raffle. They've gotten some
pretty rude turndowns from
a number of corporations
they've asked to be sponsors,
but they're not discourag-
ed," said Gilbert.
"We've sent out 15 letters
to corporations and con-
' tacted over 25" in attemp-
ting to find prize donors for
the raffle, said Block, a ju-
nior majoring in finance
whose first UJA student
campaign was last year's.
Although no firm has yet
agreed to provide the grand
prize, AT&T has promised
long-distance gift cer-
tificates and a hotel chain
has agreed to a weekend ho-
tel package. Round-trip
airline tickets also are being
sought for the raffle.
Block is optimistic about
the $8,000 goal because the
Jewish student population
at MSU is believed to be
1,500-2,000. Some 1,000
names are on the Hillel-UJA

mailing list, and committee
members have been vigor-
ously cross-checking it
against names of those at-
tending Hillel-UJA func-
tions, he said.
He was pleased with tur-
nouts at two events co-
sponsored by Hillel and
UJA: a pre-Thanksgiving
Sunday pizza dinner which
drew 65 students and a
Chanukah party that drew
40.
The UJA campus program
is more educational than
fundraising, Gilbert said.
"Its purpose is to raise
awareness of Jewish issues
at the student level so that
when the students become
full-fledged members of the
Jewish community, they
have a working knowledge
of these issues," he said.
Block, who attended Hillel
Day School and was active in
Kadima USY and B'nai
B'rith AZA as a teenager,
received training at a UJA
university-level conference
along with fellow executive
committee member Beth
Davidow of Oak Park, who is
in charge of MSU UJA bill-
ings and collections.
Rounding out the exec-
utive committee are Craig
Ostroff of Louisville, Ky.,
publicity; Cathy Mann of
Southfield, education; and
Lori Wolok, Novi, and
Cheryl Gofstein, Oak Park,
fundraising. Ostroff, a
transfer student from Boston
University who helped with
that school's $10,000 stu-
dent campaign, and Mann
attended a UJA student
mission to Israel.
