Nancy, who lives in Col orado, was our trainer for last year’s campaign and returned to Charlotte at our request. Her inspiration and sug gestions gave our campaign workers an opportunity to evaluate last year’s campaign and learn ad^tional skills to improve their effectiveness for this year’s campaign. On Oct. 26 at Shalom Park, a joint solicitor’s training pro gram was held. Two volunteer professional trainers from UJA educated the workers on the “Case for 1989 Giving” and introduced solicitor skills. The ’89 Campaign is well under way and it needs our commitment of time and financial resources to ensure its success. Women’s Division Leadership Attends UJA Regional Conference in Houston: (L to R) Rosanne Zinn (Atlanta, GA); Meg Goldstein, ’89 Cam paign chair; Sara Schreibman, ’90 Campaign chair. Women’s Pledge — Why? The value of Women’s Divi sion is measured in the oppor tunity it offers to women in both volunteer and profes sional capacities to participate in the campaign and communi ty decision making. The establishment of Na tional Women’s Division after World War II taught women that they must educate them selves Jewishly and make their own gifts of tzedakah if they were to become policy makers and community leaders. Since ancient history, it was the Jewish woman who ac cepted an obligation to help her fellow Jews. It was she as a Jewish woman and an indi vidual who filled the pushke boxes for Israel and the poor. The Women’s Division is, therefore, the modem expres sion of this ancient womanly involvement. Women are a part of the community, live in the com munity, and have a respon sibility to the community. Each woman, as an individual and not just as part of a fami ly, is responsible for doing her share. We also need to remember that American aid to Israel is influenced not only by the amount raised by American Jews, but more importantly, by the number of Jewish givers. Through a woman’s involve ment comes the education of her family and her profound influence on our Jewish life. • This article is being reprinted from a brochure by the Greensboro Jewish Fed- eration. tl r I. ^utmce^ importers of FRENCH and ENGLISH FINE FURNITURE and ACCESSORIES of tk« I8tfc and EARLY 19th CENTURIES Visit Our New Location w/new selection of fine antiQues and •cce*»one8 just imported from England and France 1000 Dilwortn Rd.
