Cohen goal 73 fund drive the spurt in sales of Israel Bonds in Indianapolis last year was most certainly cause for congratulation but it should not be allowed to permit us to end up with what is a cliche a rest on our part of the difference Over past years is the decision on the part of the Community leaders to do something about the Sale of Israel Bonds. Resulting from this decision is the two congregational Bond Selling meetings of Beth Al and the Indianapolis hebrew congregation this month. Other Good results can be traced to that decision but what we Are concerned with Here Are the two congregational meetings. In any fund raising Effort a Bonds Are sold by using the same techniques As in the annual Jef drive a the big Money is in the till in Advance of the meeting. To be sure there Are always those who at a meeting Are carried away and out of a Clear Blue sky comes an unexpected donation or Purchase of Bonds. But if we were to rely on this kind of a a Miracle we Are doomed to the same disappointments which marked the Israel Bond Sale in this City for 20 years until the Advent of the two hasten Brothers to Indianapolis. The congregations have never in the least Way Ever been anything but very much pro Israel Bond sales. Yet there would not have been these 20 years when our Community did absolutely nothing for the sales Effort if any congregation had really had the guts to go out and do a Job. That would have meant going Over the Heads of the federation and the federation Board so nothing was done because the Board members of the federation and of the congregations Are the same people. Do not get the idea that the federation boards or the boards of the congregations Are made up of bad people. We Are not saying that. We Are Only saying that the incentive and the motivation to do a Job for Israel Bonds were lacking a and there Are very Many reasons for that some valid some mainly alibis. But the thrust of the a town crier is yet to be stated. That is that if the two meetings a Beth Al and inc a for the Sale of Bonds Are to be successful those on the committees have to go out now and get commitments to Purchase the Bonds. To leave it for that night Means a repetition of the embarrassing meetings in past years when really worthy members of our Community were the Honoreen As these meetings and the sales of Bonds a if you except those purchased by the Banks of our City a were pitiful. One of the men in this Community whom i respect most but disagree with on Many issues was made to go through such a meeting where his friends deserted him by not attending and by not buying Bonds either. So it is up to the committees to go out and get the Job done. It can be done but it wont be done without the leg work. Well soon know just How seriously this Community has taken on its obligation to recover from the disgraceful years when All Over the United states Bonds were sold in increasing amounts year after year just As the contributions to the United jewish Appeal were beating the total of the previous year and Indianapolis was somewhere at the $200,000 Mark a that is if the sales were Good that year. The jewish welfare federation has set a record goal of $2.4 million for its 1973 fund drive. The goal was adopted at a recent Jef Board of directors meeting following presentations by two representatives of the United jewish Appeal a Michael Arnon and Louis Goldman. The Uja gets the Lions share of Money raised from the annual drive for its overseas operations mostly in Israel. Arnon former ambassador for Israel at Ghana and Council general in new York and now Secretary to the government of Israel told the Board of urgent requirements in resettling immigrants. He cited an enormous housing shortage in Israel and shortcomings in education. He also told of a severe backlog in facilities because of the critical defense problems Israel continues to face. Goldman president of the Dayton jewish Community Council and a National Uja chairman said quotas adopted by individual communities Are based on the realistic needs of Israel. Demonstration protests Russ exit policies last monday night oct. 9, at 7 30 ., Lay and clergy leaders of the jewish Community protested soviet antisemitism at 46th Street and Sunset prior to the performance of the Beryoza dancers of the user at Clowes Hall. The demonstrators called attention to the soviet policy of ran soming jewish intellectuals and to the plight of Valery Panov who was fired by the Leningrad Korv Ballet last april when he applied for an exit visa to Israel. Among the Eye catching devices carried was a Bank Check More than three feet Long that will dramatize the fact that some soviet jews must pay the government upwards of $30,000 before emigrating depending upon their educational background. Other demonstrators showed posters telling the Story of soviet jewry. Ezra Friedlander local attorney and chairman of the soviet jewry committee of the jewish Community relations Council was spokesman for the group. Earlier in the Day the federation of jewish youth organizations delivered a bouquet of Flowers to Clowes Hall for the dancers. Attached were the names of the persecuted jewish intellectuals.
