Reaction mixed on publication of contributors to Jef drive Jef director queries Validity of Post s poll by Frank ii. Newman i question the Validity and purpose of this Type of random poll being conducted by the National jewish Post. At Best you can Only secure a few personal opinions most of which will be subjective. The reactions that you will print might possibly have the effect of subverting the thoughtful work of a deliberative body such As the jewish welfare federation s Board of directors. The jewish welfare federations Board of directors agreed to publish an annual report or an accounting of its work to the Community. In describing the humanitarian work accomplished by the federation agencies the Board of directors also agreed to recognize those individuals who have made these services possible through their contributions to the federation. Now what is so unusual about this this Type of report is common to a Large number of eleemosynary organizations and is frequently used in Church campaigns and College drives by jewish welfare federations in Many cities and Here in our own Community by the United fund when they list the names of donors in the general press during the Campaign. The federation s Board of directors feels that a report of this kind will have a salutary effect in the Community and will help to establish a better climate and pattern of generosity. The end result As we All know is to help enrich the lives of people overseas in this country and Here in Indianapolis. It is within the conscience of each person to determine if he or she is making an adequate contribution commensurate with the ability to give. If one is comfortable with his gift to the federation it really does not make a particle of difference the amount of the contribution. Many of the objectors to the yearbook Are among the individuals who know they Are not contributing adequately. On the other hand there Are objectors who have Good reasons for not wanting their gifts announced and their opinions Are welcomed. The federation s Board of directors is a representative body and reflects the Tenor of the Community. It is entrusted with the task of raising adequate funds to meet the needs of its 65 beneficiary agencies. It feels that an annual report of the kind planned will help the Community. Everyone Shodd go along and support the boards aim of building a better jewish life. Mixed reaction was Given by members of the jewish Community to the publication by the jewish welfare federation of a year Hook listing the names of contributors and their donations. Those opposing the publication of the year Book said that it was an objectionable method of fund raising. Sigmund Beck a member of the federation s Board of directors told the jewish Post and opinion that he voted against the decision to publish the Book As he Felt Quot giving should be a matter of personal a however a he said a i am willing to abide by the majority decision of the Board of David Cook the 1963 federation Campaign chairman said that the entire Board of directors overwhelmingly approved the publication of the year Book. The vote was taken last year. A the purpose of the Book is to describe the work of the federation agencies and give recognition to people whose generosity makes it All possible. He pointed out that such yearbooks have been used by Many communities throughout the country. A a we Hope that people will be inspired by what they see other people Are giving. The United fund uses widespread publicity and lists names of contributors in the daily newspaper a Cook added. Or. Robert Werman said he was against this form of fund raising because a i do not feel that shaming people will increase the yield or that the a Korody Honor is particularly Sam Kroot said that he was very much in favor of it As it was important that members of the Community be placed on record for their contributions. A there is nothing unique about this As it is done in other communities. In those communities where the Book is published they have Dean among the More successful fund raisers. Ted Goldberg said that he thought it was an unfortunate Way of raising Money. A it forces some people to give More than they would give in order to keep up with the Joneses which is mrs. Hyman Frank said that since the year Book was effective in other cities it warranted a try in Indianapolis. A i do feel that there might be some objectionable aspects but this method has Many things in its Harry Joseph said that the reason for publication of the Book was not valid unless the amount of unpaid balances of the contributor also were listed. A a it a unfair to the contributor who has never failed to pay his pledges in the past and this will give an incorrect picture of him to the Community. Joseph said that in 1947 the Book published included a list of the unpaid pledges. Contributors were however Given an Opportunity to make Good the balances before the Book went to the press. Shoolem Ettinger declared that he was strongly against this Type of procedure. I done to feel that its going to do anything towards raising of greater funds but rather that it will deter Many of these who Are now giving. A they will probably Cut their funds and possibly not give at All. In a sure that if a True Cross Section of the jewish Community is questioned they would overwhelmingly be against it a he said. Ben Domont said that he saw nothing wrong with the publication. A the Only ones who done to want it Are those who done to do their share in the Community.
