sense of religion, a sense of
spirituality, of tradition.
"But there is some
evidence that people are
looking to turn back to more
substantive areas of life (in a
Jewish context) and this
(charity) is one of them,"
said Mr. Cramer.
Yet another dimension of
the impulse propelling more
Jews to be conscious of a
"Torah of Money" is the
desire to explore the power-
ful effect money has on an
individual's inner and public
"Money issues have
always been closeted," said
Mr. Dekro, and "people are
really trying to get a better
understanding of the ways
in which money and wealth
and resources work in their
All of these facets of the
"Torah of Money" are part of
an effort to engage Jews con-
sciously in the Jewish pro-
cess of giving charity, and
using that to strengthen
their bond to the Jewish
community — in short,

utilizing tzedakah as a vehi-
cle for Jewish continuity.
"People feel excited when
they discover these Jewish
vehicles for them to par-
ticipate as Jews" in
tzedakah, "when they had
been raised to believe there
was only one way to give,
and that was to their federa-
tion," said Mr. Dekro.
The new funds are
stimulating Jewish con-
tinuity and identity by pro-
viding a way "to stay 'in'
and give 'out,' " he said.
According to Marlene Pro-
vizer, executive director of
the Jewish Fund for Justice,
the opportunity afforded by
some of these new philan-
thropies to marry spiri-
tuality, community and so-
cial responsibility "connects
people to a sense of mission
and purpose and feeling part
of a community of shared
values, which mitigates
against a sense of isolation."
"People want to make a
Jewish statement and see it
as part of their Jewish iden-
tity," she said. ❑

Donor Nations Pledge
To Assist Palestinians

Washington (JTA) — World
leaders, including U.S.,
Israeli and Palestinian offi-
cials, joined together in a
historic conference here last
week to pledge $2 billion in
economic aid for Palestin-
ians in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip.
The International Con-
ference to Support Middle
East Peace, held at the State
Department was convened
by the United States and
Russia to help implement
the landmark Israeli- Pales-
tinian accord signed at the
White House last month and
to encourage further steps
toward peace throughout the
Middle East.
Forty-six delegations
arrived at the State
Department for the donors
conference, and the pledges
soon began pouring in. In
the end, the conference rais-
ed $2 billion covering a five-
year period, including $1
billion for the first two years
and as much as $600 million
for the first year.
The World Bank estimates
that the Palestinians will
need $2.4 billion over the
next five years, and
Treasury Secretary Lloyd
Bentsen said he was "confi-
dent" that figure would be ex-
Some nations, surprised by
the fast pace of the Middle

East peace process in recent
weeks, have yet to announce
their pledges.
Among the donors, the
United States offered $500
million over the next five
years, Japan $200 million
over two years and Saudi
Arabia $100 million in 1994.
Israel pledged $25 million
in grants and $50 million in
credits "over the coming
Organized in a short time
and occurring just two weeks
after the Sept. 13 signing
ceremony, the conference
still had some loose ends to
tie up.
For example, it was still
unclear what percentage of
the donations would be in
the form of loans and what
percentage in the form of
U.S. officials said that the
American contribution
would consist of about 75
percent grants in the first
year, during which time the
Palestinians would be settl-
ing such basic economic
issues as paying teachers'
Then, in later years, as the
Palestinians began em-
phasizing investment issues,
the percentage of loans
would increase.
The World Bank will serve
as a sort of secretariat, coor-
dinating the activities of the
