Campaign - 1982


 Where does the money come from?

You — all the two thousand members of the Central Kentucky Jewish

You — be you male or female — head of a household or head of a house.
You — from dimes to dollars — from your pocketbook and from your heart.

NOW — Campaign 1982 is under way to raise funds. Your money will be
divided as follows:

70% to United Jewish Appeal

20% to Other Jewish Charities

10% to Projects in Central Kentucky

100% to a better world for Jews

Campaign 1982 is divided into divisions:
Men's Division — Steven Caller, Chairperson, Erle Levy, Co—chairperson
Women's Division — Gail Cohen, Chairperson, Gloria Katz, Vinnie Dubilier,




On March 21 the Men°s division will kick off its 1982 Campaign at
a brunch at the Lafayette Club. The affair will begin at 10:00 a.m.
and end before noon. All men who plan to make a contribution are invited
at no charge. The main speaker is Zvi Kolitz, a prominent Israeli film
maker. An interesting program is scheduled as well as a delicious lox
and eggs buffet.

This year's campaign is headed by Chairman Steve Caller and assisted
by Erle Levy as co—chairman. Caller and Levy advise that the 1982 drive
will involve more workers than ever (40) who will work under the following
captains — Mike Ades, Bob Baumann, David Bolotin, Ernie Cohen, Leon
Cooper, Alvin Goldman, Allan Slovin and David Wekstein.

Erle Levy stated that "a goal of $250,000 has been set which repre—
sents an increase of 20%. We are confident based on worker enthusiasm
and the needs of World Jewry that this goal will be reached."

Arthur Salomon is the Men's Division Chairman for Project Renewal,
and is directing that part of the Campaign which will raise funds for
our adopted neighborhood in Israel known as Netanya—Sela. Lexington
and Louisville have joined together in this effort to upgrade the
quality of life in this socially and economically depressed neighborhood.

Men: Please RSVP to Steve Caller, 266—1314 (home) or 252—8803
(office) if you plan to attend the brunch.

The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany announced
the extension of the deadline for the filing of applications by Jewish
victims of Nazi persecution, who may be eligible to receive grants from
the Claims Conference Hardship Fund until December 31, 1982. More than
fifty million D.M. were paid out already to eligible claimants.

The Hardship Fund is intended primarily to handle applications from
such Jewish victims of Nazi persecution who left Eastern Europe after
1965 when the deadline for filing claims under the German Indemnification
laws expired. Other persecutees who failed for very valid reasons to file
timely indemnification claims in the past may also apply to the Hardship

Applications may be obtained from the:
