The two tons of snow fell upon the JCC out of the large blue truck which transported it from a Sanford ice, packing planL The use of the truck was donated by Aaron Scrap Metals, ln HERITAGE photon by Barbara Coenson-Roth for Jewish Voted Down guidelines, pointing out the cooperation already emsting among the synagogues, Federation agencies and the Combined Jewish Appeal, the Federation's annual major fund drive. Board member Abe Wise said the measure would "create an atmosphere of you- can't-do-anything-u nless-you- have-approval-from-Federa- tion" and said it has the "aura of asking too many questions and demanding too many answers." Dr. Arnold Bierman called it "over-regulation" and ---',, oresident of the InCOl lilt , r Jewish Community kicnatu Appelbaum, said the regula- tions would "over-burden" the JCC with its three-months- prior-planning rule and asked that "we grow into it." Kerstein had asked that Israel prepare the guidel[nes in view of the disarray of fund- raising campaigns in other communities and the conflicts with their major campaign efforts similar to Orlando's CJA drive. Israel said his proposal was adapted from a similar program now being used successfully by the Ft. Lauderdale Jewish Federation. After turning down a motion to table the action on the measure, the board unani- mously defeated the guidelines proposal on a voice vote. It is expected that Kerstein will ask that Israel ^-oration with a provide the r =, ..... more informal set of rules to deal with multiple fund-raising campaigns. by Barbara Coenson-Roth HERITAGE Staff A community-wide effort to raise one and a quarter million dollars for the 1980 United Jewish Appeal-Federation campaign will kickoff next Friday night, January 11, from the pulpits of area synagogues. The goal of one and a quarter million dollars is "a mandatory goal for this com- munity to fulfill its own needs," according to Sunny Mandell, general campaign chair- person. Based on pre- campaign Big Gifts activity, Mandell said the community has a "better chance of meeting this year's goal than ever before." This will be the second year the kickoff will be held at area synagogues because "We have a strong belief that the heart and soul of our Jewish religion is our synagogue," Mandell said. "It is symbolic that the official opening of the appeal for CJA and needs in our community begin from the pulpit of the synagogue." Mandell will address the congregation at Temple Israel at a Shabbat dinner and service. Services begin at 6 p.m., dinner at 6:30 p.m. Howard Volpert, occupa- tional chairman of the Mercantile Division of the campaign, will address Congr. Ohev Shalom at Shabbat Services to begin at 8:15 p.m. Susan Bierman, associate chairman for Women's Division, will speak at Congr. Inside Heritage... Rhodesian Jews...

The request was filed with the Department of Housing and Urban Development in Jacksonville before the end of the year. It is not known how long before the request will be acted upon. If approved, the community room would be built between the two 14-story apartment buildings for seniors on S. Delaney Street. It would be used by the residents of both buildings, connected by a covered walkway. The room would be a multi- purpose room, large enough for many indoor activities as well as a dining room for the possible serving of one hot meal each day. Plans call for a large kosher kitchen to be installed with the community room, but it reportedly would be used only for special functions. The daily mea would be served in the community room, but it would be catered, provided enough of the residents desired it and federal funding could be made to subsidize it, said one SOUrce. It is expected that the pro- gramming plannu ...... community room will gi the many Kinneret residents op portunities for more social, enedaining and occupa- tional activities.
