Suninier A. ^4 New Jewish Qenter For Columbus With 'this week's aniiouncemenl of tlie proposed Jew¬ ish Center building in Columbus, local Jewish leaders are embarking on one of the most constructive programs ever launched in the Jewish community dui'ing the past 80 yeiirs. The appeil for necessai-y funds to accomplish this great effort is directed to every Jewish inhabitant in this area, whether his means be substantial or modest. Many public spirited men and women, aware of the important part played in Jewish life by the Center, have already made very generous contributions to this Building Pun4 Drive, but it is essential, for community-wide co¬ operation in the future, that ALL Jews give liberally and participate in the campaign. Contributions from-every¬ one will intticat^ the united interest of Columbus Jews in the Jewish Center and its vital role in thfe community. We are all cognizant of the magnificent morale work among both civilians and service men done by the Jewish Centers throughout the country, during these war years— sharing in the activities of the U.S.O.; operating independ¬ ent Servicemen's Lounges and Recreation Centers, and, conducting "free" Canteens and other social, educational and hospitality services. The Jewish Center, however, is important primarily as a peacetime, community agency, and It will be put on its mettle to meet and handle the post-wgr peacetime problems that will confront Jewish youth and many Jew¬ ish adults in our home towns. The stress and social change brought about by the long w£|r; the disruption of fajnily life incidental to the war; the taxing of j)hysical and emotional health suffered directly or Indirectly through war; the dislocation of ed¬ ucational and cultural reservoirs due to the war, and, the Intensification of inter-racial-problems aggravated by the war—must all be studied, treated and solved, if we are to return to a normal, ^healthy, democratic way of life. Fortimately for the American Jewish community, Jewish Centers have always been a force in preserving and developing the democratic way of life. Fortunate, too, are «e that through their philosophy, trataed person¬ nel, well-developed lay leadersijilp, extensive facilities and long-experl^ce In community. work and programming (Continued on Page four) Samuel N.
