SPECIAL GIFTS DIVISION OF UJF REPORTS GOOD START FOR 1955 "The Jewish people have survived through all tho past centuries be¬ cause of their aense of mutual responsibility demonstrated in mutual aid. Jewa have persevered because they have an Innate sensitivity to tho needs of others- a sense-ot family which stretches heyond the in¬ dividual's own household to include all Israel." .^uch was tho keynote of an address given by Rabbl Harry Kaplan nt a meeting of all the personnel working In thc Special Gifts Division of thc 1955 United Jewish Fund campaign. "The ovcr-emphasia on thc philanthropic, the repeated story of the need for saving Uvea, has sometimes seemed to negate that which maUea for the continuity of the .lowish people. I "Our United JewUh I'^\ind cam- pnign not -only includes necessary philanthropic .igencica that have as their main purpose the .salvaging of lives, rescue and rehabilitation, Important aa these are. but also include agen tries which continue our Jewi.sh tradition by supporting educational, cultural., and spiritual programs. Judaism was never seen in terms of mere physical survival. We would be untrue to our heri¬ tage If we did not also work to¬ warda the building of our educat- tonal Institutions. "The season of Passover is a good time to remember thc teaching of Moses which stccssed the com- Mnation of spiritual and physical freedom. While we work to save our brethren througout the world and to help them build a life of In¬ dependence in larael, our United Jewish Fund - also supports local and national agencies^ Through these agencies we challenge the forces of despotism and slavery as In early years we counteracted Nazism and Fascism and continue to counteract totalitarianism par- ticularly through our support of the.commun ty rtHations organiza¬ tions. Mutual sharing arc key words in all our Jewish traditions."
