The Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit has stepped up
fund-raising efforts for its 2006
Annual Campaign. It plans to hold
community-wide phonathons at the
Max M. Fisher Federation Building,
6735 Telegraph Road in Bloomfield
Township. Times are Sunday, Jan.
29, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and
on Wednesday, Feb. 1, from 6-9 p.m.
Volunteers will telephone hun-
dreds of households to raise funds
to benefit the Jewish community's
social welfare agencies, schools,
eldercare services and cultural pro-
grams. Federation's partner agen-
cies are pressed to maintain essen-
tial health, educational and social
As the principle source of Jewish
community funding, Federation's
Annual Campaign supports 18 local
agencies, including Jewish Family
Service, JVS, Jewish Apartments & s
Services, Jewish Community Center,
Jewish day schools, Hillel and
Tamarack Camps. Overseas, the
Campaign aids Jews in Israel, the
former Soviet Union, Argentina and
other places.
This year, every increase in
pledge or new gift to Federation's
2006 Annual Campaign will be
matched dollar-for-dollar through
the A. Alfred Taubman Challenge
Fund. Taubman established the
fund this year to honor the memory
of his close friend, the late Franklin
philanthropist Max M. Fisher.
To volunteer, call Lisa Cutler,
(248) 203-1458.

JCCouncil Meets

The next Jewish Community
Council of Metropolitan Detroit
board meeting will be held at 7:15
p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1, at the Max
M. Fisher Federation Building in
Bloomfield Township.
Allan Gale, Council's associate
director, said the agenda will
include discussing some resolu-
tions to be debated at the Jewish
Council for Public Affairs Plenum
in Washington, D.C., Feb. 25-28.
The affirmative action initiative
going on Michigan's ballot also will
be discussed.
The JCPA Plenum discussion will
be open to the public, he said. The
affirmative action item might not
be open because it might lead to a
vote among Council board mem-
bers, he said.
