Opponhcimcr Tribute Dinner .said, "Tlio economic budget for the .Statu of Israel in IOCS is $300,- 000.000 dollars. Of this figure Israel Bonds has been requested tu raise .$100,000,000 dollars. "We all know of the marvelous strides that Israel has made in the past 17 years. But I wonder if we Melvin Rackoff arc truly aware of the enormous handicap this young nation has had to overcome, and must continue to overcome in order to exist at all." FOURTEEN YEARS AGO Israel inaugurated the first i.ssue of Israel Bonds. This young nation made a promi.se to the Jews of the world-- a promise to repay $1.50 for every dollar invested. Many had grave doubts about ¦ Israel's ability to keep it's word back in those days. ¦Vet they bought bonds. We invested our money in a dream of freedom for the oppressed Jews of the world. The meeting was called to Or¬ ganize a committee to work oh the dinner to pay tribute to one of Israel's staunch supporters, Sam Oppenheimer, who was chairman for Israel Bonds in Columbus in 1964 when the sale of Israel Bonds in this city exceeded all other years. "It is up to us, and to every Jew in our community to sec to it tliat his efforU in 1964 and this year as well, do not go unre¬ warded," Rackoff said. "It is up to us to see to it that Israel Bonds continue to i n s u r "Cyl s r a e 1 's future, and tiirough Israel's well- being, a haven of refuge is ensured for all those Jews throughout the world.

The primary function of this com¬ mittee is lo greet new residents and newly married women and to ac¬ quaint them with the way the Young Matrons Division operates and how it is affected by the com¬ munity. THEY RECEIVE information about many of the local agencies as well as those agencies abroad receiving aid from the Fund. Mrs. Ben Eisenstein said; "The young women who have been con¬ tacted to date have been most cor¬ dial and interested in the impor¬ tance and needs of the United Jewish Fund and Council. We hope to reach all newly-married wonien and recent newcomers to .the Co¬ lumbus community and make them'an integral part of the coming campaign." ANYONE HAVING any questions about Young Matrons Division ma^ call, Mrs. Eisenstein 2'J7-3091 or /Mrs. Herman 235-1619. Mrs.]B. Lee Skilken and Mrs. Stanley Katz are Chairman and Co-chairnyui ,of Young Matrons this year. Pointing out that rapidly chang¬ ing conditions, including the changes in the Jewish commu¬ nities, a d v a nee in the social sciences, extension of gnvernmenlal aid programs and revision of non- sectarian services,, reinforced the necessity of continuing reexamina¬ tion and reevaluation of Jewish communal programs, the General A.ssembly stated in-its rcsoludon on communal services: "THE NEW GOVERNMENTAL programs do not decrease the need for voluntary programs and efforts. Rather, the joint and complemen¬ tary resources of governmental and voluntary agencies offer in- crca.sed opportunities to , achieve basic humanitarian goals to which our Jewish communities are pro¬ found!^ committed." The Assembly stressed in its resolution on community services that, precisely because the Jewish agencies can help identify the needs which require general com¬ munity support and which should most appropriately have gencj-al auspices, the resources of Jewish agencies can be fully devoted to particul.'irly Jewish goals and pur- po.ses. THE RESOLUTION reconi mended that Jewish agencies, often paralleling other sectarian agencies, should: 1) Meet those needs of the p(x)r that arc ineligible or inappropriate fur government assistance; 2) meet the special Jewish needs of the Jewish com¬ munity to advance education, cul¬ ture, intergroup relations and re¬ lated requirements; 3) enlarge the Jewish contribution to advance the goals .ind character of our plural¬ istic American and Canadian societies, and to advance the voluntarism fundamental to our democracy; 4) conduct essential research into the cau.ses and cures of individual and .social problems and into the changing nature of the Jewish communities in the United States; 5) meet welfare and health needs among aU economic 'levels of the community—the men¬ tal, physical, emotional, vocational problems which are not respective of income, and which affect chil¬ dren, families and the aged in all economic groups. The resolution pointed out that the central Jewish community or¬ ganizations give expression to American ,Iewry's concern for the well-being of the individual Jew and for the strengthening of the community as a whole. "To this end', it stated, "our federations and welfare funds support a vast net¬ work of es.sential services—our pro¬ grams for children and the aged, our family welfare agencies, our medical services, Jewish educa¬ tional systems, community rela¬ tions programs, cultural services and Jewish cornmunity centers, vocational agencies, national ser¬ vice agencies and others." WITH REGARD TO Jewish immigration into the United Stales, the General Assembly commended the United States Congress and the Administration for "enactment of the long-.sought legislation, revising the immigration laws of the United States to eliminate the national origins quota system." The Assembly recommended that the Jewish community and national agencies in the United States "make the most of the new opportunities to resettle the addi¬ tional immigrants who \yill be able to come to the United States, by continuing and extending their reception and assistance pro¬ grams." THE UJFC of Columbus is a member of the CJFWF.

Hate Groups^ Viet Nam Birchers^ Concern Vets BY MICHAEL FEINSTEIN . The 'three most pressing concerns of the Jewish War Veterans at present, said Dr. Morton Sobel, a.ssistant'national director of the organ¬ ization, are the groups of the extreme right, organized hate groups (and the war' in Viet Nam. This view was expressed at a press conference last Friday. Sobel was in Columbus to speak at the Friday night .services at the Agudas Achim Synagogue. Also present at the press conference were Herbert Mermelstein, Commander of the i Slate of Ohio, and Norman Cohen Commander of Post 122 of Colum¬ bus. TH€ JWV KEEPS close surveil¬ lance over such groups as the John Birch societj. publishing pamphlets concerning the group's activities. Sobel safd that hearing Welch speak only reinforced his convictions con¬ cerning the .society. .S'obel also attacke<l organized hate groui)s such <as the Ku Klux Kliln -and the followers of George Linc-oln K()ekwell. The JWV was deeply involved in Rockwell's race for the govi'rnorship of Virginia. THE STATE was finoded with JWV pamphlets so lliat no one wtiuld unknowingly vote for the leailer of a group which openly eon- (IdOi'd Naziisrn. As a result Rock¬ well drew le.ss than half tin,' votes indicated in prior pretiietions. The JWV is al.so viTy pleased with IIUAC investigations into the Ku Klux Khin. In this respect Nor¬ man Cohen, local post Commander, | offered Attorney General William Saxbe the support of the locaj post in his efforts regarding the Klan in Ohio. SOBEL SAID THAT naUonal Commander Milton Wildor will make a trip to Viet Nam to ex¬ amine the situation. Backing the government's stand on Viet Nam policy, the JWV is vitally interested in the war effort there, and also the domestic implications of the war, manifested in part by the rash of draft card burners. The JWV is one of the most mili¬ tant and powerful spokesmen for American Jewry. They are the only .Jewish organization wilih lobbying privileges. Other tools of action include economic boycotts, picket¬ ing, and the distribution of pam¬ phlets. RESULTS HAVE BEEN seen in such areas as the extension of the Statute of Limitations in Germany, the overwhelming defeat of Rock¬ well in Virginia, and the somewhat improved position of So,iet Jewry.
