Black-Jewish
Group Forms

A new group in Washing-
ton hopes to bridge the
black-Jewish gap by focus-
ing on a concern shared by
the two communities — the
plight of Ethiopia.
The Committee of Blacks
and Jews to Aid Ethiopia
will emphasize both the spe-
cial dilemma of Ethiopian
Jews and the broader prob-
lem of starvation in a revo-
lution-ravaged land.
"We are infuriated by the
'compassion fatigue we
see," said Peter Kovler,
/\=-= chair and founder of the new
group. "People just aren't
paying attention to the
famine in Ethiopia, or to the
continuing problem of get-
ting Jews out."
The group will award
grants to a variety of famine
relief and Ethiopian Jewry
organizations.
But no less important to
the group's leadership,

which includes a Likud
cabinet member, South
African Bishop Desmond
Tutu and a long list of black

and Jewish leaders, is the
thorny question of black-
Jewish relations in this
country.
"We think its very impor-
tant at this point in time to
show that blacks and Jews
don't just bicker, but can

take the lead on certain
issues," said Mr. Kovler, a
Washington businessman
with a long-standing interest
in black-Jewish relations.

NJCRAC Cuts
D.C. Office

/"

Efforts • by the National
Jewish Community Rela-
tions Advisory Council
(NJCRAC) to establish a
Washington presence suf-
fered a setback this week.
But it wasn't because of
the recent controversy over
the group's contract with a
Washington consultant to
serve as NJCRAC's "eyes
and ears" in the capital.
Instead, NJCRAC's con-
tract with consultant Ellen
Witman fell victim to the fi-
nancial woes that have
plagued the Jewish commu-
nal world in this recession
year.
"For financial reasons, we
will not be able to renew the
contract when it ends in mid-
August," said Larry Rubin,
the group's executive direc-
tor. "In truth, we're facing a
potentially serious deficit
this year. We're retrenching
three professional positions,
and putting a moratorium
on the process of increasing
our Washington presence."
