But through the cdsis the Center continued with its basic philosophy that "no one be denied access or membership due to financial difficul6es." Paul Jeser, in his JCC exec- utive director report, presented the highlights of the past year. He pointed out the JCCs sponsorship of the Florida Symphony as the "most important program of the Center" this past year. "It helped us develop a relation- ship with the non-Jewish community and put people in the JCC, not generally involved, to work" in addition to realizing a $6,000 profit. The addition of two newly settled Russian Jews to the JCC pre-school showed that the nursery school could handle situations beyond normal borders, Jeser said. He called the financial troubles the JCC encountered "growing pains which awakened JCC leadership and helped plan for the future. Also significant was the growth of the Singles" groups which constitutes about 25 percent RICHARD APPELBAUM (i) and JOH ROSENBERG of the Jewish community. The JCC Day camp, accord. ing to Jeser, is the most significant program on an individual basis. "It's the only time the younger children get to relate and learn from each other," he said. He also pointed out that most Centers in a community of this size have a staff two to three times larger than Central Florida's and that the JCC does a tremendous amount of work with only two full time people who do 9.5 percent of the work--Marvin Friedman and Lois Tanenbaum.
