Group Breaks With
United Jewish Appeal

New York (JTA) — Taking
discontent over Israel's
economic policies to a new
extreme, a Massachusetts
federation has made a
radical break from the
United Jewish Appeal.
The Jewish Federation of
the North Shore is allocating
up to half of the money that
would have gone to the UJA
and giving it to a fund for
small-business loans in
Israel's Negev region.
"We think philanthropy
has a lot of faces other than
the traditional faces, and
one of them is giving a man
a job," said Neil Cooper, the
federation's executive direc-
Creating jobs, said Mr. Co-
oper, is necessary for the
continuation and success of
the immigration from the
former Soviet Union.
But members of the tradi-
tional federation and UJA
system are furious.
"It is an abrogation of
their partnership respon-
sibilities to the task of bring-
ing Jews home from the
country of distress," said
Daniel Allen, assistant ex-
ecutive vice president of the
United Israel Appeal, which
oversees the money the UJA
disburses in Israel to the
Jewish Agency.
"Without the funds of the
federation system, the Jew-
ish Agency will not be able
to continue the work of br-
inging 60,000 or more Jews
to Israel from the former
Soviet Union each year,"
said Mr. Allen.
The Jewish Agency pays
all immigration costs and
some resettlement costs for
Jews immigrating to Israel.
Its $500 million annual
budget is financed by the
UJA and similar fund- rais-
ing organizations around the
Donors to this year's North
Shore federation campaign,
which is expected to bring in
about $2.5 million, were
given the chance to divide
their gift, which helps Jews
overseas, between the UJA
and programs designed to
create jobs.
This is believed to be the
first time a federation gave
donors the choice to con-
tribute to Israel through a
means other than UJA.
Mr. Cooper expects that
when the pledges and
choices are counted, the fed-
eration will be able to give

50 percent of the overseas
money to the job creation
Last month, the federation
decided that the money
designated for job creation
will go toward interest free
loans. It allocated $100,000
to the Israel Free Loan
Association, and the re-
mainder — likely to be
$500,000 — to a new non-
profit loan fund, being set up
by the San Francisco-based
Koret Foundation.
"I think we're filling a
much unaddressed niche in
the Israeli economy," said
Bob Lappin, chairman of the
federation's Israel Free
Market and Direct Economic
Aid Committee.
In putting economic devel-
opment on an equal footing
to the UJA, the North Shore
federation has raised to new
levels an issue that has been
steadily rising on the agenda
of the federation and UJA
With neighboring Boston
leading the way, some fed-
erations have established
economic development
committees to link local
businesses to Israeli part-

campaign to raise money for
