KEREN KAYEMETH LEISRAEL

AN OPEN LETTER ID THE
JEWISH COMMUNITY FROM
JEWISH NATIONAL FUND

A major challenge is at hand. With perestroika and anti-Semitism on the
increase within the Soviet Union, more than 250,000 Soviet Jews are expected
to emigrate to Israel in 1990. 11,994 brethren emigrated in 1989.
Is Israel ready to accommodate these new citizens? Will they move into the
mainstream, or will they flounder at the margins? The answer greatly depends
on each one of us.

Jewish National Fund, for its past and as always, will be deeply involved in
clearing and developing the land to make ready for these new immigrants. Our
thrust, given the overwhelming urgency of immediate readiness, in financially
assisting our brethren this year, will be through the Allied Jewish Campaign —
Operation Exodus. $16 Million must be raised. This is part of a world-wide
commitment.

Traditionally, the Jewish National Fund commences its major fund raising
April 1st of each year and culminates its drive with the annual dinner in June.
However, to maximize a coordinated community effort necessary to fully fund
Operation Exodus as quickly as possible, THE JEWISH NATIONAL FUND IS

CANCELLING ITS 1990 SPRING CAMPAIGN AND JUNE 13TH ANNUAL DIN-
NER. We urge all our benefactors, supporters and members to generously con-

tribute to Operation Exodus now to make ready Israel's reception and embrace
of the vastly increased numbers of our freed Soviet brethren expected this year.
