The Rationale for Centralized Funding

By John Ruskay

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), December 1997

It is apparent that American Jewish donors are beginning to designate their philanthropic funds for specific Israel-related causes and projects, at the expense of klal Yisrael (collective Israel) purposes. In response to that, Dr. John Ruskay, senior vice-president of UJA-Federation of New York, calls for a greater understanding of the local Federation's role in serving Jewish groups that do not benefit from direct donations, and that would be in great trouble if not for centralized Federation allotment. His comments are excerpts from an address delivered in New York City in 1996.
