From Separatism to Community: The Origins of the United Jewish Appeal

By Marc Lee Raphael

World Zionist Organization (WZO), Spring 1980

The United Jewish Appeal is a voluntary organization of American Jewry specializing in the collection of funds. Well known in the United States, even outside of Jewish circles, its fame extends outside America and is by no means limited to the State of Israel, its principal beneficiary. From modest beginnings before and during World War II, when annual drives produced fifteen or twenty million dollars, the UJA has succeeded, in the mid-seventies, in raising nearly a half-billion dollars each year.
