These two new Americans were getting
in touch with their heritage at Yeshiva
Beth Yehuda. 17 children from the Soviet
Union attend classes at the Yeshiva.

On that same February 15, other Jewish
community agencies were doing their
work, like these...

• Fresh Air Society, where staff were making summer
plans for 1 ,500 children and mapping out a series of
winter family weekends.

• Hebrew Free Loan Association, where a new American
— one of 1 ,000 to come from the USSR this year —
was getting a financial boost toward starting a business.

• Jewish Community Council, whose visit to a Detroit
primary school was highlighting the black-Jewish partner-
ship in the civil rights movement of the '60s.

• Agency for Jewish Education, where 1,100 youngsters
take part in Jewish studies — from elementary through
high school.

• Jewish Family Service, where an 1 1-year-old was being
introduced to a volunteer who will become his special
friend and mentor.

• Jewish Federation Apartments, where a new resident was
meeting an old friend over lunch.

• Day schools and campus Hillel centers, where hundreds
of young people were making a connection with Jewish
life.

And thousands of miles away...

In Romania, where an elderly woman was enjoying a
hot meal at the kosher canteen... and in Israel, where a
Soviet Jew, at long last, was learning the real meaning of
freedom.

You were linked to all these people on February 15, 1990.
Through the Allied Jewish Campaign, you shared a day
in their lives.
