the review committee's conclu-
sions, but not disheartened.
"We're not going out of busi-
ness and we're not looking at it
as criticism," he says. "We'll deal
with it."
Next week, Council board
members will discuss ways to
contend with anticipated
changes. They will address new
methods of boosting volunteer
participation in the agency's op-
erations.
"That's going to be more im-
portant than ever," Mr. Gad-Hart
says. "We will be seeking help
from individual board mem-
bers to play even more active
roles." 11

STAFF REPORT

oters in the Southfield
Public School District
elected Roger Goolsby to
fill the vacancy created by
outgoing board member Steve
Kaplan.
Because no candidates offi-
cially filed in the election, Mr.
Goolsby and others had to run
write-in campaigns, which added
to the longer-than-usual time it
takes to tabulate vote totals.
Mr. Goolsby, who has been ac-
tive with various parent-teacher
organizations, accumulated 431
write-in votes.
He is expected to be sworn in
to the vacant four-year term on
July 5.1 I

have undergone similar scrutiny
as part of a new, fiscal oversight
program aimed at maximizing
monies donated by local bene-
factors.
Mr. Gad-Harf believes the
soon-to-be released report on
Council advises his agency to fo-
cus attention on government, in-
tergroup and media relations, as
well as domestic issues like pub-
lic education, hunger, and the
separation of church and state.
He is not sure which functions
of Council the report recom-
mends downplaying.
Council president Allen Zem-
mol says he is disappointed with

ederation's pocketbooks are
bulging this year with dol-
lars from a record-breaking
1995 Campaign, but the
Jewish Community Council ex-
pects to receive considerably less
of the pie.
The Council, a nearly six-
decade-old agency designed to
build bridges between Jews and
the general community, last year
received almost $500,000 from
the Federation, its primary fund-
ing source. This year, that allo-
cation might shrink by more than
$40,000.
Jewish Federation officials,
who determine allocations each
spring, would not say why the
Council has been targeted for
cuts and they stress that nothing
is final until the governing board
posts its funding decisions July
11.
Most agencies affiliated with
Federation are expecting larger
allocations, thanks to an Allied
Jewish Campaign that brought
in about $8,500,000 more than
last year. The Jewish Commu-
nity Center is slated for an in-
crease. So are university Hillel
organizations.
JCCouncil Executive Director
David Gad-Harf declined to com-
ment on why his agency might
be getting less money, but he
says that reductions will impact
staff and programming.
Evidently, they already have.
On Monday, June 19, one Coun-
cil staff person, a seven-year vet-
eran of the agency's public
relations department, was dis-
missed. The salary of another
member of Council's nine-person
staff is in limbo.
"Positions are being eliminat-
ed," Mr. Gad-Harf says. "There
is a significant staff reorganiza-
tion in the works. It will be fully
implemented in the course of the
next six months."
The changes come subsequent
to an agency review that began
last December. A 10-person, Fed-
eration-appointed committee, led
by Irving Tukel, examined the
Council's role and recommended
a decrease in funding.
Mr. Tukel would not give de-
tails about a report his commit-
tee is finalizing for presentation
to Federation leadership later
this summer.
"I do not believe it is appro-
priate to comment since the mat-
ter is ongoing," he said. "This is
all premature."
The review committee for
Council is neither unusual nor
designed to punish that agency,
Federation officiaLs say. Other re-
cipients of Campaign dollars
