ith the Jewish
philanthropic
system under un-
precedented strain .because
of the recession and the mass
exodus of Soviet Jews to
Israel, the United Jewish
Appeal is about to make a
major change in manage-
ment that will help deter-
mine its future course.
And UJA may choose as its
top professional a man who
has been criticized as a mav-
erick among Jewish leaders
for bucking the system and
allocating community funds
directly to Israel, bypassing
the established UJA route.
The search is on for a
replacement to Stanley B.
Horowitz, the group's presi-
dent and top professional
who served in that post since
1983. Mr. Horowitz resigned
in February, effective June
30. He will remain at UJA
as a consultant until the end
of the year.
The leading contender for
the job, according to sources
in the Federation world, is
Brian Lurie, an ordained
Reform rabbi and popular
executive director of the
Jewish Community Federa-
tion of San Francisco, the
Peninsula, Marin and
Sonoma Counties.
- Mr. Lurie, who had al-
ready announced that he
plans to step down from his
current post, confirmed that
he is a candidate for the top
UJA job.
The fact that Mr. Lurie is a
leading contender, observers
say, reflects UJA's desire to
seek creative new ap-
proaches, both to the fund-
raising process and the
allocation of the group's $21
million annual budget.
Several years ago, the San
Francisco Federation touch-
ed off a major controversy by
earmarking some of its
money directly to specific
projects in Israel.
The action came in re-
sponse to widespread com-
plaints about the lack of con-
trol available to individual
Federations over the alloca-
tion of the money they rais-
ed.
Despite initial complaints
from the UJA estab-
lishment, the San Francisco
protest helped reshape the
policies of the Jewish Agen-
cy, the organization that
allocates UJA-Federation
money in Israel.
Mr. Lurie, 50, is widely
regarded as an innovator

willing to take a hard look at
the way Jewish organiza-
tions allocate their funds
and to assert the right of
American Jews to help de-
termine how their charitable
dollars are spent in Israel.
According to another Fed-
eration executive, Mr. Lurie
is also "a wizard at fund-
raising," a quality that
could help UJA meet the
enormous demands
resulting from the reset-
tlement of Soviet Jews in
Israel at a time of relatively
flat UJA-Federation cam
Paigns•
The new president, ex-
pected to be chosen in June,
will confront a growing
move to merge UJA with the
Council of Jewish Federa-
tions, which some Jewish ac-
tivists contend would elim-
inate duplication of services
and add to the efficiency of
the philanthropic process. ❑

Aristocratic
Hate Mail

London (JTA) — A titled
widow associated with the
extreme right wing was
charged in magistrates court
with 10 counts of incitement
to racial hatred for
distributing anti-Semitic lit-
erature imputing ritual
murder to Jews.
The Dowager Lady Bird-
wood, 77, who is contesting
the charges, was released on
unconditional bail pending a
hearing June 11.
She was charged under the
1986 Public Order Act,
which relates to the posses-
sion or distribution of
"threatening, abusive or in-
sulting" literature.
