Jewish life is fragmentized. The sense of Jewish identity has become weaker. There is much that needs to be clone -- yet community dollars are getting scarcer, and those that we have are shrinking in value. That is the challenge that confronts us. This is a time for leadership. We must become deeply, truly involved with the quality of Jewish life. Our programs must be designed to enhance Jewish identification and the persons who carry out those programs must have Jewish knowledge and commitment and must know howto provide Jewish experiences for others. We must deepen the relation- ship and interchange between North American Jewry and Israel. We must also worktogether to a much greater degree than ever before. There are many areas of common concern in which organizations can pool their efforts instead of "going it alone," thus saving untold thousands of community dollars, e.g. when 17 major national Jewish organizations, in a unique displayof coopera- tion, worked together on a Holocaust educational guide project in connection with NBC-TV's "Holocaust" docu- drama. On the local scene, Jewish Federations and Jewish Community Centers often mobilize their entire commu- nities in cooperative endeavors to provide Jewish expedences. In improving the quality of Jewish life -- whether it be in the cMlien community or in the military -- duplication of services and competition among agencies must be minimized. The sounds of the Shofar call us to carry out our respon- sibilities to meet changing needs. JWB pledges to do its part. On behalf of the entire JWB family, I extend warmest greetings for the New Year and pray that the year ahead may be one of health, happiness and fulfillment "It is better to ask some questions than to know all the answers." -- James Thurber PEACE PROSPERITY / HEALTH for all our /- customers & ar friends! uJInteR PaRI4 FeOeREIL
