active in assisting with UJA
fundraising activities. "I con-
veyed to our congregation
that in order to get money we
have to help raise the money,"
Goldstein says.
Adding even more interest
to the debate are some UJA
board members who feel that
the real issue is not
"pluralism" per se but
whether parochial groups
should receive communal
funds. "The broader issue is
whether or not religious
organizations should be fund-
ed at all," says Ernest Fon-
theim. "If a synagogue wants
to have a program that's open
to the public let them, but
let's not fund them."
Fontheim isn't alone in his
sentiments. "Personally, I'm
opposed to any funding to
Chabad because I feel that
they are a congregation," says
board member Newell Miller.
"I don't think the Jewish
Cultural Society should be
funded; or Beth Emeth or
Beth Israel either (the latter
two have never requested
funds). I think their members
should support them and take
care of their needs."
It's not expected that the fo-
rum will generate any type of
resolution but there is near-
unanimity that the issue
needs discussion by the board
and the community at large.
"We need to get the issue out
in the open," says Margolis.
In April, the UJA will be
holding a second public forum
to discuss whether or not the
Ann Arbor federation should
be giving money to Israel
through channels other than
the UJA. If some board and
community members have
problems with funding an
organization like Chabad,
which is considerably right of
center theologically and
politically, then there are
others who will raise a
similar concern about fun-
ding organizations at the op-
posite end of the spectrum.
The New Israel Fund re-
quested, but did not receive,
funds this past year. UJA
bylaws do not appear to ex-
clude the possibility of disper-
sing funds internationally by
means other than the UJA
The questions that have
surfaced recently regarding
the allocation of funds — who
gets what for what and why
— are a result of the
UJA/JCA's move from
adolescence to young
adulthood. As the organiza-
tion changes it will continue
to grapple with, and for-
malize, procedures and
policies that in the past were
resolved in a more ad-hoc
manner. The answers lie not
only on the shoulders of the

24 members of the board of
directors. "I think the com-
munity needs to make deci-
sions on where and why the
money goes where it does,"
says board member Phyllis
