YOUTH DIVISION'S MAJORS APPOINTED Last ycar the Youth Division of United Jowiah Fund tried a new system ot having each vice-chairman on the executive board choose an assistant. The jobs of the assistants included helping their respective vice- chairmen with aertaln tjrpes of work, learning about tho various types of preparation necessary to promote the actual Unltod Jewish Fund drive, and being a major on tbe day of the drive. This system proved ao .effective that Beverly Schecter and Marvin Kay, who are tho-*co- chtjLirmcn of the 1960 drive, have decided to use thl^ system again this year. The following people have been chosen to be assistants for the 1956 drive: general drive assistant, Dick Wolman; workers' dinner assistant, Sally Abel;.secretarial assistant, Lois Polster; publicity assist¬ ant, Julie Berman; speakers' bureau assistant, Qary Cheses. HEBREW SCHOOL TO CLOSE CLASSES In ohacrvanco of Passover, the Columbus Hebrew School will be closed during the entire Pasaovbr holiday. Regular classes will re¬ sume Wednesday, April 4. UJF APPOINTS 12 SPECIAL GIFTS CHAIRMEN Twenty-one leaders In tho Jewish community have been given tho honor and responsibility of serving as vice chairmen of Special Gifts Dlviaion of tho United Jrwi.fh Fund, according to announcement by Aaron Zacks, Division chair¬ man. Organization of tho group of vici^ chairmen was compictcd last wrek under the direction of the four co- chairmen of Special Gifts. Including Herbert Schiff. Harold Schlffman. Edward SchU'zingor and Sum Sch¬ lonaky. The newly-appointed vico chair¬ men are Robert Aronaon. Harry Getz. Dr. Ivan Gilbert. Marvin Glassman, Louis Goldfarb, I. M. Harris, Herman Katz.

Ben Yenkln and Dr. Maurice Zox. "It gives me pleasure to an¬ nounce the participation of theae leaders in our effort," Zacka stated In making the announcement. "I know they ail feel keenly the re¬ sponsibility we aa Jews have thia yoar, whon wc are confronted with the neceaalty of raising the largest amount of money over required. "Qf the half-million persons In 26 countrlea the United Jewish Ap- peoJ muat aid this year, more than 125.000 arc children. In addition, we hope that our campaign will enable 45,000 Jewish people to leave North Africa for the refuge of Is¬ rael, and we expect to do .our part In continuing tho welfare programs wo support in that country. At the aame time wc cannot, diminish o\ir support for our local, national and other overseas programs." Zacks expressed confidence that with the help of the newly ap¬ pointed vice chairmen the Special Gifts division will give a good ac¬ count of itself In telling the Jewish people of Columbuawhy they muat give generously to the aupport of local, national and ovcraeaa agen¬ clea and in collecting their con¬ tributlona to the campaign. HOW ATTITUDES CHANGE There was a time, and not >o long ago, that crippled children were kept in baclt l)edrooms and hidden (rom relatives, (rienda, and neigh¬ bors. Th(^r parents felt ashamed and actually believed that they were to blame for their chn37en!«.handlcaps. Today that attitude la dunged and crippled children have been t)iought "out of the dark" and 'into the light" through spectallxed eate, treatment, and rebabiUtation. Thli) change, whloh Is making productive citizens out of the handicapped, has been brought about by organizations among whlcb the NaUonal Society (or Crippled Chil- dt«sn and Adults, Inc., and its 1.M0 Easter Seal affiliates across the na¬ tion are leaders. THEBB ABE IM EASTER SEAI. units in Ohio, including 73 county societies for crippled children which are associated wltb The Ohio Society (or Crl(ipled Children. Tou probably have contributed to one ot tlieir annual Easter Seal campaigns. With new medical discoveries ^d techniques making such strides In tbe rebabiUtation of the crippled, thero are many more who can bo helped this year. At the same time services tor crippled children continue to grow more costly each year. B\ind8 are desperately needed to continue and expand' the care and treatment to reach aU of our crippled children. Saster Seal contiributiona have proved that crippled children can be rehabilitated Into tax-paying, rather than ,tax-supported, citizens. T.I. SUNDAY SCHOOL PUNSSEDARIM Four separate sedarlm will be held in the T. I. Sunday School Sunday. Mrs. Kr&us's klndergart- nera will have a class-room seder, as will Mrs. Tracht's first graders. In that way, the routine of the youngest children in the school will be least altered.. . Grades 2, 3, 4. and & wlU hold their seders In the assembly room op the second floor of thq, Educat¬ ional C«nter, The remaining. clas¬ ses, 6, 7, 8. confirmation and high school will hol4 seders In the soc¬ ial hall of tbe Temple properr "The Sisterhood Sunday School committee, under the chairmanship of Mra. Qeorge Seigel, and a'group of USYers, will serve the tradition¬ al dishes sedarlm. The sedarim will be based upon thie "Model Seder Version of the Haggadah,-'- first published at the Temple in 1047. It will climax all the study and preparation for Passover. The activities have in¬ cluded making individual Klddush cups, clay seder plates, aluminum foil seder plates and papev plates decorated with Passover symbols. MItS. SHARWELL Evening Chmn, The policy groups of tho Wom¬ on'a Dlviaion of the United Jowish Fund are inaugurating . a now function for thla year's drive. On Wednesday. April 11, 8 p. m., will be an evening cocktail party for the women who will bo $100 con- trjbutor3 to this year's campaign. Mra. Sherman Sharwell is chair¬ man of that evening activity. Hor advisors: Mrs. Joseph Schecter and Mrs, Herbert Schiff of the Advls- ory Board. Mra. A. B. Welnfeld. will, bo hostess at her home, 225 N. Columbia, for the 1958 $100 minimum party.. It la the belief of the chairmen, and their Advisory Board and Steering committee, that there are many women who want to know intimately the needs, the complex and challenging altuations that exist for Jewa on the world ac^ne. and to -evaluate the Inatltutional agencies that receive funds from the Columbus United Jewish Fimd drive. The women who attend the home parly at Mrs. Welnfeld's on April 11 will be privileged to be a part of a smaller group and In the warrt\ atmosphere of a home meet¬ ing to receive the Inspiration and tho information that will give more meaning to their pledges. MItS. SHARWELL urges all women who can join In thia group of $100 minimum contributors, that they call In to make arrange¬ ments to attend the meeting, to make this group a algnificant part of the 1956 campaign. , Mra. Sharwell said, "It is an act of courage and of sharing in the best tradition of Jewish idealism to see the people of Israel opening their doors to the new w&vty-^t refugees from North Africa. It takes .only a few weeks for a hun¬ dred dollara to b" spent to assist In the care of aomc of these Im migrants, not too many daya for a child to get the care that JlOO can buy. "The Israeli is sharing hla home while he knows that he must en¬ dure the greatest possible sacrifice to keep that home. Today we can do nothing to help In this except to give money. We ore asking that thoae women who have in the past been contributors to the fifty dollar function take special notlc^ of this new division and try to make themselves a contributor to Its ranks." MRS. LEEMAN Luncheon Chmn. Chairmen of tho Women'a Divi¬ sion o! tho United Jewish Fund havo announced their 1956 cam¬ paign is now focused toward ac- , tion, functions which will reach every Jowish woman in the com¬ munity, and provide the maxlmurn coverage, oduealion and some now ideas to give variety and in¬ terest to the campaign. On April 11, the flrat meetings with contributors, commlttece and outside speakers will be held. The traditional and highly successful Pacesetters Luncheon will be held that day. The policy of the Women's Di¬ vision has beon that the retiring chairman o! the overall campaign takes on the reaponaibllity of the Paceaettora mooting. MR«. MILTON LEEMAN is the t956 chairman. She has looked for¬ ward lo that aspect of her work because the organization of the initial luncheon carries with it the enthusiasm as well as the deep sense of obligation and privilege that Columbus Jewlah women ex- preas aa they gather together to make lhelr pledges for 1956. The pacosottcra Luncheon will be at the home of Mrs. Charles Lazarus. 236 N. Columbia. Invita¬ tions havo been mailed and reser¬ vations will be received by the chairman aa soon as possible.
