'iresident's Column

IV Neal F. Zalenko, President, JNF Council of Michigan

re recently celebrated the Holiday of Purim...a day when the Jewish People held firm to their convictions
/ and were saved. On April 4th, we begin to celebrate the Holiday of Passover, where once again the Jewish
People were saved. The commonalty of these two holidays is not only in the fact that we were saved, but
more importantly, we were saved as a People. Today we still cling to the unique fact that we are a People, a family that

cares for each other.
We, as a People and a community, establish organizations and agencies to service the needs of each other, the family, the sick and the el-
derly. We care for our People at home, abroad and in our homeland, the State of Israel. Those needs may be serviced by fulfilling personal
and direct needs or by assisting, as JNF does, with fundamental infrastructure needs that ultimately sustain or improve lives.
Israel's most precious and scarce resource is WATER. In 1991, rationing was considered, crops which required high amounts of water,
such as cotton, no longer could be grown. Most of the drinking water in Israel is realized through the winter rainfalls. When there is a
drought, as was the case several years ago or a sparse winter rainfall as is the case this winter, then water prices can soar as high as $2.50 per
gallon. JNF has embarked on a costly program of dams and reservoirs to trap and utilize flash flood runoffs and attempt to retain this valu-
able resource and eliminate the hardships caused by water shortages. We in the Great Lakes Region take ow water for granted; however,
water is a resource no civilization can survive without
Now, before Passover, I implore each and every member of this community to make a special gift to JNF to assist in the continued con-
struction of water projects in the State of Israel. Help so that our children and grandchildren will reflect on Purim, Passover and the'People
of the Diaspora who, together as family, saved our People and our Land.

We implore all of our friends
to support, in an extraordinary
way, Jerusalem 3000 by respond-

Three millennia ago, King
David declared Jerusalem the cap-
ital of Israel. Through the cen-
turies, Jews kept in their hearts
and souls the dream and desire,
"Next year in Jerusalem." JNF
helped the Jewish people realize
this dream, and its work on behalf
of Jerusalem 3000 will have a
tremendous impact on Israel's
capital and on the lives of its citi-
zens.
Jewish National Fund has de-
veloped and enhanced the city of
Jerusalem for decades. JNF has
undertaken, in honor of
Jerusalem 3000, to complete the
magnificent Green Belt that en-
circles Jerusalem, symbolizing that
Jerusalem is the one, undivided,
unified capital of the sovereign
state of Israel and of the Jewish
people.
JNF will conduct a world-wide
