Graduation Problems Hr

ByBottoSmoiw iMIii • Mil Wmatm J.tAi

Jewish communities thraugiXHil the country — opedally In the larger cities — are alarmed over the gloomy job outlook for graduates. Employment projections by the communities indicate that Job expectahons for members of the graduating clas^ are very bleak. This is true both on the college and high school level and to a large extent for those young Jews In colleges and universities seeking summer Jobs. There are now approximately 400,(IOOAnierican Jewish college students and a great many need summer Jobs. Some of then need the income to help pay the next fall's tuition. Jewish vocational services in the larger cities have been receiving applications from recent college graduates seeking jobs. Some applicants are willing to take Jobs in any field. Othere are willing to move anywhere. Affected mostly are those who studied engineering, business management, accounting, teaching and liberal arts. Many high school graduates have decided to seek non-academic jobs and careers. Tbe Impact of the economic wttmon on Jewish communal needs, services and finances has now been assessed by the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds. The CJFWF says that most communities are feeling the current economic dislocations, but without panic. Almost without exception

the communal agencies in larger citas are pressing the local Federations lor more funds to meet rising costs and needs for increasing services. Pressure comes especially from the Jewish Family Agencies which are getting an unprecedented number of requests for aid Becsuw of the growing iBiwmiiuyinml, it iMooiiica Imiwlmly diffieuM ior tbe Jewi* agSDclM to llDd Jobs for Soviet JewM immivaiits.

Over a two-y?ar period, some allocations from Federations to local Jewish family agencies have tripled and quadrupled. Tlie aging. who already constitute a large percentage of most family agencies' caseloads, are increasingly seeking financial

assistance. The poorest are on fixed Incomes and rising inflation has made them even more impoverished. A new category seeking help, are heads o( families who have l>een laid off in their mid-career. They have heavily mortgaged homes, children in college and little savings. These are people in the professional-technicalmanagement fields. The silualion is especially critical for those over 4S years of age with more limited employment opportunities. There are also cases where the affected are over 55 years of age. Jews In that category have little chance to find any new employment In some cities, like Boston, these men's wives are seeking jobs Unemployment may bring a decrease In Jewish summer camp enrollments. Jewish day schools are tKing affected by requests for reduced tuition.from parents with marginal income, or newly-unemph)yed. -^

More recently, canton have become teachers and have also come to coH>fficlate at synagogue and private functions. Cantors see music a* a vehicle for teaching Jewish values and history, because nearly every Jewish tune represents a community and a period in Jewish history. • What is a cantor's biggest challenge today? "To create and sustain an effective mood of prayer," sayd another of the participants Sunday night, Beth El Synagogue Cantor Chalm Najman. "1 think we've practically lost the knack of praying."

OMAHA—dooperatlon from some members of the Jewish community is all that Is needed to assure a successful conclusioa to the 1975 Omaha Philanthropies Campaign, Its leader saM this week. "We're about two-thirds through with the Campalfn and with any cooperation from the Jewish community at all. we will succeed in raising the necessary monies and we will complete our campaign on time," said Campaign General Chairman Ell M Zalkln. The 1975 goal Is (3.450,000. Throughout history. he said, the Jews have learned "that no one helps the Jewish causes, or shares in the Jewish problems, but the Jewish people, and so we should come forward to help.

He noted that many Campaign workers are Involved in the aftermath of the May 6 tonudo and "it is difficult to spend the time necessary to search o|it each and every Individual." Zalkln warned, "The alternative to not succeeding In raising our goal is curtailment of services, which we should avoid at all costs."

Let History Be the Judge SjrJ.OmldRaaiMlqr DES MOINES - Lord Macaulay's speech In the House of Lords in 1833, London: "In the infancy of civilization,- when our Island was as savage as New Guinea, when letters and arts were still unknown to Athens, when scarcely a broken hut stood on what was afterwards the site of Rome, the Jewish people had their fenced cities and cedar palaces, their splendid Temple, their fleets of merchant ships, their schools of sacred learning, their great statesman and soldiers, their natural philosophers, (heir prophets, their historians, and their poets. "What natkm ever contended more manfully against overwhelming odds for Its independence and its religion? What nation ever. In its last aconies gave such signal proofs of what may be accomplished by a brave despair? "And If In the course of many centuries, the oppressed deteendants of warriors and sages have degenerated from the qualities of their fathers . . . shall we consider this a matter of reproach to them? Shall we not rather consider it a matter of shame and remorse to ourselves? "Lat OS do Jiirtloa to dwm. Ut «• opoa to dwm dw door of dw Hoow of Oomnoaa.

Israel, since the dawn of history, has exer-

Israel has centuries of Mkldle Eastern history behind her long before the Arabic languagejor the Moslem faith saw the'llgbl of day.

Recently a group of young Israelis near the Dead Sea came across some parchment scrolls written 1,900 years ago and they were entirely Intelligible to any young dtlzen of Israel loday I Israel is not alien to the MhhOe East, but an organic part of iu texture andi Its long memory.

Take Israel and all that has emanated from Israel out of Middle Eastern history and you empty that history of its great central experiences.

To share a common gk>ry In the past, a common will in the present: to have done great things together: to wish to do them again — these are the essential conditons of being a natkm." And our common will Is to build up our Home again. And we will triumph!

Community Forum: Help, Please, Help ByAlanWetoar There is a problem In Des Moines. It's not a new one: but it has. in the last year, grown to lethal proportions The problem concerns the youth and points at the adults lor cause. The problem concerns all Jews In Des Moines. This Is the problem: In the last year. Jewish youth groups In Des Moines have fallen to drastically kiw levels In membership. Two youth groups have considered folding and the other two may soon follow that scary path I have been Involved in Jewish youth graups since I was able to join and have noticed this decline, whidi has reached Its peak this year. Perhaps the greatest evidence of this fall was dramatized when only 45 of ISO Jewish youth showed I4> for the United Jewish Appeal Day on Sunday, April 20 at BorteH's Randi. Why 7 Well, the activities held there were fantastic, the Jewish exposure and awareness opportunities were unlimited and tlie cost was only your time and your conscience. So where were 105 Jewish youths on Sunday. April 20? Home sleeping? Out with their non-Jewish friends who they see seven days a week? Or have they forgotten they were Jewish and don't wish to be reminded? Those quasihMis are hard to answer u wall as painful lo ask. But the plain, easy, amweraUe queallon is, why are Jewish youth no (onger glad to be Jewish youth? For awhile I titought It was simple youth laziness. But the more I searched out my answer I IMind the fault did not lie with the youth but Is la lbe.haixkof the Jewish parents and

adults of this community. Through aaslmilatkm of themselves, the) luive caused asaimllatkm of their youth. So where do we go from here? It would be easy for me to go on and on about problems In the adult Des Moines Jewish community, but 1 don't really think the answer to our present youth problems lies In .accusation after accusation. No, Uw aoprcr la wllh eooperatkm. The •dolts «( DM MCIBSS inuat untte for oae cause: T> nbidid • JswWi fobvs la lbs Jewish youOi I attended a meeting of the Federation Board of Governors last Thursday evening in which I was surprised to find a few adults who understand the problems and are aware of Jewish youth needs. 1 beard the memtiers speak of bulldlfig a new Jewish Community Center of extravagant costand superb (acuities. 1 heard them talk of their aged and IMW to care for them in a better way. And I heard them speak of the Importance of Jewish unity, for each oliier. (or World Jewry and for Israel. I know people care, I know (hey must. Please, please, please don't let Jewish youth groups die, for when Jewish youth groups die. Jewish youth also die. And I want someone here to .lake care of me in a Jewish way when I'm old and no longer able. So please, as a last-chance effort, support us, give us life: and we will respond. But.
