Fiorida Jewish News, April 13. 1979 State Leaders Gather For 'Future Directions' Leaders of Flodda Federations will address issues facing their dramatically-growing communities at the Florida Federations Ranning Conference sponsored by the Council of Jewish Federons, Apr. 21-22, in Orlando. "'Future planning in Florida must be based on the tact that the state is expedemdng the highest growth rate of any in the United States," noted/Vorton L Mandel, National C, JF president. "'In addison, the population of Floride is considerably older than the national norm and will be turning more and more to community services for many needs." Jewish Federations and their agencies must be prepared to respond to these factors, pacularly since people who are relative newcomers to a community -- asso many in Flodda are -- often must rely on social services since there are no relatives and long-time Mends in the community, says the CJF spokesman. Marcia Kerstein, Orlando's Jewish Federation president, is chairperson of the Conference Planning Committee. More than 200 community leaders are registered to attend. "The Jewish Community of Flodda: Directions for the Future" will be the topic at the opening meeting on Sunday eveninq, &or. 21, and will feature guest speakers Raymond Epstein, CJF past president, and Charles Zibbell, CJF associate executive director. C)n Sunday morning, six concurrent workshops ,1 focus on major areas of service, including challenges in serving the aged, planning for Jewish Community Center services, planning for Soviet,Jewish resettlement, community relations, leadership forum and Federation's role in planning for Jewish education. CHARLES Z/BBELL Following these sessions, Mark Talisman, director of the CJF Washington Action Office, will lead a workshop on government funding for social services. Specific government programs now available to Federations will be targeted and described in depth. Participants will examine the process for filing applications for Federal funding, and how a community establishes eligibility for funds. A campaign update and discussion on "Project Renewal" in Israel will highlight the luncheon meeting. APRIL IS FLOOR CLEARANCE MONTH Save from 20010 to50010 tJrruzR PLAZA (tlBU.

CORRECTION Last week's advertisement from the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando carried some inaccurate informa- tion that should be clarified: Only 12 people, not 12 families, will be relocated here. The $2000 cost mentioned in the advertisement, was an estimate for resettling each person in Orlando, but does NOT include the cost of bringing that person from the Soviet Union to Florida. Otherwise, the appeal was genuine ... and the need to support our efforts are just as great. Near The second second half Softball League in last Winless pulled the ]4.
