Enrichment Programs
Receive Funding Hikes

RUTH LITTMAIM STAFF WRITER

ome wishes came true.
The 1993 Allied Jewish
Campaign pulled in almost a mil-
lion more dollars than last year,
and agencies offering enrichment
programs for youth and young
adults are to receive beefed-up al-
locations from the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan Detroit.
Federation leaders warned agen-
cies n,ot to jump the gun, however.
Allocations, determined by leaders
of Federation's four funding divi-
sions, will not be written in stone
until its board ratifies the amounts
during a meeting schedule for Aug.
24.
But in years past, the board has
not drastically modified allocations
proposed by division chairmen.
Agency officials, therefore, are fair-
ly confident that their piece of the
Campaign pie will not diminish be-
tween now and the end of next
month.

of the B'nai B'rith Youth Organi-

school that would get done.
Plumbing and electrical repairs have

Mr. Eisenberg said there will be
no teacher layoffs.

tent that Federation lived up to its
promise to focus special attention on
"priority funding areas." This year,

"I think the youth group benefit-

what we requested ($35,000). Most
of the additional dollars likely will
go toward two
new part-time
workers," Mr.
Schanes said.
The workers,
he said, will help
