They escape from areas of crisis. Jewish
families from all over, in all sizes - some edu
cated, some with skills, some not so lucky. All
with human needs, great or small: real needs.
Some go to the U.S. or other free lands. Most
of them go to Israel. This is not 1940, and Jews
who flee from oppression do have somewhere to
go. The question is: will they find the kind of re
newed life they need and deserve?
The people of Israel open their hearts to their
brothers and sisters. In 1979, they will receive at
least 35,000 new immigrants. More than half will
arrive from areas of crisis or Jewish distress.
The Jewish Agency, the JDC and all the
other elements of our worldwide lifeline are in Is
rael and elsewhere to help them renew their lives
in freedom. Housing...vocational retrain
ing ... language education... child care... medical
care - whatever the need, wherever it’s needed,
there’s a means and a program for meeting it.
It costs money to reach out and help - more
and more each year. But the cost is insignificant
compared with the value of renewed life. And our
reaching out begins with your campaign pledge. '
Pledge today to the 1979 campaign. Renew,
yourself as you renew Jewish life everywhere.
