Where does the money go?

At its meeting in December, 1981, the CKJA Board of Directors adopted
the organizations budget for 1982. The highlights of this budget are as

Executive Committee $21,810
This includes salaries for the Community Worker and secretary,

funds for printing and mailing, maintenance of the CKJA office
(rent, etc.), and some discretionary funds.

Community Relations Committee $4,550

Funds allocated to this committee will be used to continue to
supply school calendars to the community. These calendars identify
major and minor religious holidays and have contributed significantly
to the policy of most of the major organizations in the community
not to schedule events on Jewish holidays. Additional funds will
be used to further develop appropriate dialogue and programs between
the Jewish and non—Jewish communities.

Campaign Committee $6,650

These are the funds that are necessary to hold an annual campaign
which supports Israel, numerous charities and local community activi—
ties and programs. Funds in this category are also used to administer
the annual Israel Bond Campaign.

Community Activities Committee $13,390

The committee is responsible for the Forum, Camp Shalom, pre—
school parties, Israel Independence Day celebration, and an Israeli
Folk Dancing program. Although the Committee expends this much
money, it also generates income from the sale of tickets to the
Forum and tuition from Camp Shalom.

Social Services Committee $12,000

This committee administers the Israel and camp scholarships
programs as well as the Emergency Loan Program. Funds have also
been allocated to this committee to bring another Russian family to
Lexington in 1982.

In addition to the above—listed expenses, the Board expects to
provide over $174,000 to the United Jewish Appeal and a variety of worthy

A complete copy of the 1982 budget is available to any member of the
Jewish community who wishes one. Contact Mr. Martin Barr, chairman of
the Budget Committee at 278-7078.

Following votes of approval from the Boards of CKJA and the Jewish
Community Federation of Louisville, the two communities are jointly spon-
soring the Project Renewal community of Netanya—Sela. This means that
for the next five years we will be closely involved with and responsible
for many aspects of community development in this depressed neighborhood
on the outskirts of Netanya.

A joint steering committee has been established, with representatives
from both the Men's and Women‘s Division of the Campaign Committee.
Arthur Salomon and Ellie Goldman have been appointed as the Lexington

At its first meeting, the Steering Committee approved a budget for :1
the 1981—82 fiscal year. Since Project Renewal operates on a cash-on-
hand basis, money must be available before any projects are undertaken.
Because the final approval of the sponsorship of Sela came so late in
the year, money was advanced to the community for a very limited number
of activities including a summer day camp for the children.

Several members of the steering committee will be making a trip to
Israel next month to meet and consult with representatives of Sela, and .4
the Israeli Government to review budget proposals for 1982-83. Based onlo


goals for Project Renewal fund raising.


After what seemed to be a slow start, U.K. Hillel is on the move.
Community advisors, Leon Cooper and Alan Stein have been meeting regularly
with the Hillel leadership, and Hillel has already held several meetings
on campus.

In addition to bagel brunches, movies, and ski trips, the students
are planning to hold their own campus—wide UJA fund raising campaign.

CKJA provides partial funding for Hillel, and we can be proud of the
efforts they are making to become an effective voice for Jewish students
on campus.

If you have children attending UK or Transylvania College who are
not receiving mail from Hillel, or know of other Jewish students who are
not yet on the Hillel mailing list, please let us know and We will pass
the information on to Hillel. The CKJA office number is: 277—8048.

Over the past six months we have served as Chairpersons of the Russian
Resettlement Committee. As most of you already know the Rozmans are the
second Russian family sponsored by the Jewish community of Lexington. In
July, Gregory, Victoria and their son Alex came here from Vilna, in


From the first day of their arrival the Rozmans immersed themselves
in learning about life in a new country with an entirely different language,
political, economic and social system.

Greg, an expert in the field of control engineering, was persistent
in seeking a job in his field. Within a short time he personally type:
110 letters to engineering firms all over the country inquiring about
employment. Through his letter writing campaign and an impressive back—
ground Greg was successful in obtaining an engineering position in
Richardson, Texas.

The Rozman family was very appreciative of the help and financial
support given to them by the Lexington Jewish community. They were aware
of the time and effort that went into setting up their apartment and were
thankful for the furniture and household goods given to them.

When the Rozmans left Lexington on January 2,it was difficult for
them to say good—by to the many friends they made here. They would have
prefered to stay in Lexington, but unfortunately there were no job oppor—
tunities available.

Based on our experience with the Rozman family there is no doubt that
they will be successful at establishing a new life in Texas. We feel that
the Russian Resettlement project was truly worthwhile and something the
whole Jewish community can be proud of.
