Decision



Continued from Page 1

Federation needs to know
by June 5 exactly how much
money it will have by the
end of the year so there is no
allocation shortfall. In years
past, Federation has seen
anywhere from $2 million to
$4 million in pledges come in
as late as December. It's
difficult to allocate when an
unknown quantity comes in
this late.

Jenny is a 27-year-old un-
married mother who came to
JFS for pregnancy planning
and for help in coping with a
long-term depression. She
needed both clinical treat-
ment and financial help. At
JFS, she received weeks of
counseling and some finan-
cial support. She was able to
resolve her problems.
The Campaign has serious
ground to cover in reaching
some of its goals. Last year
at this time, 15,463 pledge

cards had come in. This year

that number is 13,983. Last
year at this time,
$24,273,965 had been
pledged. This year, the fig-
ure is $23,772,834. There
are some 2,300 contributors
outstanding at this point.
Last year, they pledged
$2,633,898.
"We are deeply concern-
ed," said Campaign Director
Allan Gelfond. "We have,
though, made significant
strides. At one point, we
were close to $3 million
behind and 6,000 cards
behind. We've been able to
narrow the difference. The
goal here is not to bring us
even with last year, but to
completely close this Cam-
paign some six months
earlier."
Mr. Gelfond added that
besides closing the Cam-
paign, Days of Decision have
two other goals as well. They
include reaching people who
have never pledged in prior
Campaigns and dramati-
cally increasing the Cam-
paign's cash flow.
"We're strapped for cash,"
he said. "That's become a
challenge for us. These are,
however, national phenom-
ena. Overall, we're pleas-
ed with the way we're
holding up. We're doing
well, but not well enough."
Mr. Gelfond also said that
the Days of Decision are still
in need of volunteers to man
the telephones.
"We need them from the
time the sun goes up until
the sun goes down," he said.
"We'll be on duty all day
long."
Past Campaign chairmen
William Davidson, David
Hermelin and Joel Tauber
(now national chairman of
the United Jewish Appeal),
and Arnon Mantver, director.

general of the Immigration
and Absorption Department
of the Jewish Agency fox
Israel, will address the
critical needs in Israel and
locally to Campaign vol-
unteers.
Mr. Davidson will speak at
9:30 a.m. Sunday at the Max
M. Fisher Building. Mr.,
Mantver will speak at 7:45
a.m. and Mr. Tauber at 6
p.m. on Monday. Mark
Schlussel, Federation presi- ----

dent, will speak Tuesday at
6 p.m. Mr. Hermelin will
speak at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Steve is a 40-year-old un=
skilled laborer. He rents a
room in a house in the area.
In the main, he's been able too=
manage, even buying himself
a used car so that he could
get to work. Three weeks ago,
the car broke down and
needed $184 worth of
repairs. Steve did not have -
the money.
He's attempted to take the
bus to go to work, but he's
been late at times, and his
boss was threatening to fire
him. He came to JFS. The
agency was able to verify the
need for the car repairs and
sent a check to his mechanic.
It is estimated that 5 per-
cent of the Detroit Jewish
community lives at or below
the poverty level. That's
roughly 4,500 people. Yae
Ezra, the area's kosher food
pantry, has seen an increase
of clients from a couple of
hundred to over a thousand.
"We're hurting as a com-
munity," said Federation
planner Larry Ziffer. "These,
are serious times. There are
people in this community
who desperately need our
help. There are people who -
have never used Jewish
Vocational Service before,
but now need JVS help. The
population at risk is grow-'
ing. 1, ❑
