n open microphone
period at a meeting
for the Allied Jewish
Campaign netted close to
$500,000 at a Dec. 9 fund-
raiser.
Following an appeal by
former Minnesota Sen. Rudy
Boschwitz, Lawrence
Jackier, co-chair of the
Campaign, invited audience
members to approach two
microphones in Congrega-
tion Shaarey Zedek's Morris
Adler Hall. Mr. Jackier ask-
ed speakers not only to an-
nounce their pledge to the
Campaign, but encouraged
them to increase their dona-
tion.
Close to 25 individuals of
the 250 in attendance
stepped up to the mike.
The same method was used
earlier in the month by the
Jewish Federation's Young
Adult Division to raise
$200,000 from a room of
about 80 persons.
Mr. Jackier's appeal for
funds comes at a crucial
juncture for the Jewish Fed-
eration. The Jewish com-
munity has been hit by the
recession, thus increasing
the demands on Jewish so-
cial services. To date, the
1992 Campaign has received
pledges of $16 million.
Sen. Boschwitz played a

crucial role in securing the
departure of 15,000 Ethiopi-
an Jews for Israel. As a spe-
cial envoy for the president,
Sen. Boschwitz helped
negotiate a cease-fire bet-
ween government and rebel
troops in Ethiopia's 17-year-
old civil war. That cease-fire
allowed Israeli planes to fly
in and out of Addis Ababa's
airport.
"Because the Jews were
thought to have privileges,
they were vulnerable," he
said. Within one weekend,
Israeli airplanes airlifted
the Jews to Israel, where
they were met by relatives
from an earlier exodus of E-
thiopians.

Sen. Boschwitz, who was
born in Germany just prior
to the Holocaust, related his
personal expereiences to
those of the Ethiopians.
His family, he noted, had
searched in vain for a coun-
try that would welcome
them. The Ethiopian Jews,
he said, did not have to sear-
ch at all.

"What a difference 50
years makes. What a differ-
ence the state of Israel
makes," he said.
Noting that the struggle to
feed, house and clothe the E-
thiopian Jews is far from
over, Sen. Boschwitz
implored the audience to
continue being "the guaran-
tors to Jews everywhere."
